    New Walt Disney biography due out soon

    I saw this is Newsweek. A new book on our favorite guy will be published October 31. It is called "Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination" by Neal Gabler. Newsweek is calling it a definitive Disney bio. The book has 800 pages including 170 pages of footnotes! Should be good.

    I'll start to read it as soon as I get back from WDW, but it may take me awhile to get through it to write a review. Any speed readers out there?

    Both Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble have the book available for pre-order. My guess would be that most major bookstores near you will have the book.

    I don't know...
    Any Disney biography that doesn't paint him as an alcoholic, tyrant or pedophile might not sell. . .
    (sarcasm)
    Forget 'Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln,' Samantha Brown is Disney's most sophisticated animatronic.
