    Howard is a friend of mine and has been with Disney Studios Animation Division for I believe more than 20 years and is currently vice president for publicity. With his history with the company and access to the Nine Old Men and others it was a great idea to put together a book of remembrances from people who actually knew Walt and worked with him.

    I think the essence of Disney is perfectly captured very well in this book and is an important addition to my library.
    I'm reading this book on and on now, I love the stories. Some I have read before in an american original and how to be like walt, but they must be great stories if they make three books.

    I love The Ultimate Visual Guide.
    I have Walt Disney Imagineering and I agree it is a great book
    The mouse tales books just came in from B&N! Due to the fact of B&N not having many books about Disney last weekend, I picked up Disney War. So far, not the greatest of books IMO.

    Once Upon An American Dream: The Story of EURO Disneyland by Andrew Lainsbury
    The history of the development of Euro Disney up through about 1999. May be seemed a bit dull to those that do not enjoy nonfiction but should captivate a Disney park fan.

    The Pirates and the Mouse: Disney's War Against the Counter Culture by Bob Levin
    The story of Dan O'Neil, a hippie cartoonist who started a rather explict comic book that used the Disney characters. A good stroy that is told in a well written way.

    The Gospel According to Disney: Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust by Mark Pinsky
    Looks at the values that are presented in a good number of the Disney animated features. Pinsky sort of confused me a bit with his take but interesting none the less.

    And, of course, DisneyWar: The Battle for the Magic Kingdom. I'm about 3/5 of the way through and it is very good so far.

    I have not read this but the reviews have been very good and the library is putting a reserve on it for me. Lots of information on the planning stages and building of DL and supposedly a "must read" for anyone considering a career in theme parks.

    Not that this is new information, but the Mouse Tales series have always been my favorite to read.
