Reviews

"Mesmerizing. . . . There's nothing Mickey Mouse about this terrific biography. . . . The definitive portrait of Walt Disney, the Dream-King." --Washington Post Book World"Gabler's restless eye invigorates each page. . . . Part of the author's formidable achievement is to take the intricacies of Disney's devoted artistry and intertwine them with [his] life." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "Far outshines any previous Disney bio, both in scope and in specificity. The domestic details are revelatory. . . . Walt Disney is looking at us-seemingly for the first time." --Entertainment Weekly "Illuminating. . . . Engrossing. . . . Gabler paints a vivid portrait."--The New York Times Book Review
