    Wait a minute.....In the book didn't Eisner say he thought of himself as Disney's heir? So if he thought of himself as Disney's heir then Disner wouldn't be too far off the mark. You're Eisner, I knew it

    Just got it. So far so good. Will give you my thoughts when I am done.

    I was a little creeped out by how Eisner likes to point out to people the similarity/connection between his surname and Disney's...

    I'm a little slow juming on the bandwagon...I just got it this last week. I haven't had a lot of time to read it, but I already am not to thrilled with Eisner...

    I've read this book twice. Fantastic. And horrible. It is hard to figure out just how much of this is true. I would be curious to know what other ceo's think of this.

    Yeah- I am not sure what I feel about it- I am about on pg 350 and I can't decide how much is true...although i can't stop from reading it.

    Finished it a couple of weeks ago. Couldn't put it down. Read it in 3 days. A must for every Disneyphile.

    I read it in February or March. I read it quite quickly as well.

    How correct is it? I would not be surprised to find out pretty darned so.

    Just ordered my copy today, but won't be here until late May, only because I order a hard to find edition of a Walt Disney biography.

    I loved this book. Is it just me, or did it surprise anybody else how much gossip and backstabbing and childish behavior goes on at that level of business? I am naive about this I'm sure, but I guess I just expected that people who have made their way that far in the world would know how to deal with people better than that. Eisner seems like a high schooler in how he talks to everybody about the person he has a problem with except that person. Doesn't seem like a good way to do business, or to live.

    I picked mine up yesterday at Borders. Havent put it down.

    We got jipped when it came to covers... it's a bland red with a standard TrueType font heading, followed with what seemes to be three bombs in the shape of Mickey's head. It's also a paperback :x.

    I read this book and while I was reading it, thought to myself, "No way all of this can be true." James Stewart had no personal motivation to paint Eisner and his goons in a negative light. He had no motivation to take sides. He began his story years prior to 9/11 and was there during the Eisner/Roy crisis. He was granted access to thousands of documents, employees (past and present), boardroom and executive office discussions, including joining Eisner on trips, and the biggest point of all:

    Disney (i.e., "Eisney" and his puppets), known for their aggressiveness to topple anything that remotely appears negative to 'their' organization, has not made any real attempt to rebut the book. There hasn't appeared to be any attempt to refute any of the information presented in the book. With all of their money and owning a media conglomerate, I would think if the information was NOT true, there would have been a lawsuit or at least a public display of its innaccuracies.

    I believe what I read in the book. It was a fascinating, quick read.
