The Quotable Walt Disney – Disney Book Group

I picked up this book on our honeymoon to Disney World. But I never read it, because; how do you read a book full of quotes? The answer is slowly!

Just grab it every now and then. And read a few pages.

The Quotable Walt Disney – Disney Book Group (2001) – 272 pages

Of course this is probably a heavily edited and well scrutinized book. Assembled under brand protection of the Disney Company, one of the biggest media companies in the world.

Nonetheless I learned quite a few things, and I have a much clearer understanding of the man who started it all. His choices, beliefs and character are still visible to this day in the fabric of the Disney company.

His ideas about what a park should be, what makes a good story and specifically what the role of entertainment should be. You get a pretty good idea about his thoughts on these matters by reading quotes.
