    1. I did not know much about Walt Disney, except for the obvious, so found this book pretty interesting. Though it is really a very condensed version of Walt's life it still gave me a good idea of what kind of person he was, what kind of family life he had and also how great his drive and ambition were. Because of this we still reap the rewards of all his marvelous creations/ideas.


    2. I am evaluating the book, the Man Behind the Magic, a biography of Walt Disney, by Katharine and Richard Greene.This interesting biography portrays Disney's life as one of vision, disappointment, and phenomenal success. He built an entertainment empire that began with innovative animation techniques and continued, even after his death, with the construction of Walt Disney World and the Epcot Center. This young man from Missouri had a tendency to push both himself and his stuff, which led to seri [...]


    3. I picked this book mainly due to the MMM July challenge of the month was to read a biography. I love alot of the Disney movies, and have just been to Walt Disney World this past June 2012 Disney is on my mind. I never really read about the man behind the entertainment. The book gave a ton of information about Walt's life, how lucky he was as well as the disappointments that occured in his life. I recalled that Snow White was the first full-feature cartoon, but I had thought that a Mortimer Mouse [...]


    4. i love Walt Disney and his works. Disneyworld and his moviest his new TV shows *cough hanna montana cough* but, in the beggining of this book, i thought it was boring. the facts werent clear and very discriptive. but as he was building disneyland, it got better. so if you like bios that doesnt show many dialoge, this is a good read. but maybe they should make a book about him making Diasneyland because thats what i found interesting.


    5. Walt Disney was a genius. At a very early age he was creative, inventive and a dreamer. He could do just about anything, but he always had to be in control. he was never short of ideas, and he seldom let finances get in his way. How many times can you be on the brink of ruin and still see the possibility of great success? I love the man, what he has accomplished and the imaginary world he has created for children and adults.

    7. Although this book was not very difficult to read or very in depth with a lot of details, I felt like it gave a great summary of Walt Disney's life along with some fun little stories about him. It was a quick and interesting read and even my 12 year old enjoyed it.


    8. All right, I saw the DVD close enough. It reminds you that if you really want something, keep at it. Never give up and never quit dreaming.


    9. I love everything Disney or Mickey Mouse related. This was a good read learning about the creative genius behind it all.



    10. Probably one of the best biographical books I've ever read. It keeps breaking my heart but then it sews it up again. Very well written. Very entertaining. Very worth the read.


    11. This is a nice biography of Walt Disney- not too long and definitely keeps the interest for "Tweens" assigned a biography. Such am interesting and creative man.
