"Schickel's unauthorized biography of Walt Disney... may be the single most illuminating work on America and the movies."--The Kansas City Star
"[The Disney Version] established the terms of interpretation and debate about Disney... [and] remains the most analytically and aesthetically penetrating portrait."--The Atlantic
"The Disney Version is a model of good judgment, exemplary in balance and impeccable in tone."--Commentary
"The story of how Disney built an empire on corrupt popular culture... becomes a revealing part of American cultural history."--The New Yorker
