      I have been reading the book. I'm almost to page 300 (just finished the Katzenburg settlement). This book is AWESOME!!! I hate going to sleep or to work because that's time taken away from Disneywar. After I'm done reading it I'll be reading it aloud to my wife. I never read a book twice, but I can't wait to go back and read it all over again. I really hope this book has a large impact on shareholders and wakes up the people who think Eisner and the company are just fine. This book needs to rally people, and like in the movie, Network yell, "We're mad as hell, and we're not going to take it anymore!!!" at Eisner and the board.

        Don't believe everything you read. What I've read of it seems exaggerated. Ther eis a shred of truth in it for sure, but the details seem to be off.

          Good book so far, It already is painting Eisner as a Tough cookie to work with. It has more then just about him it also talks about the authors humble beginnings. You have to read it and develop your own opinion. I like it so far.

            I finally got it today, AND I LOVE IT! It lights up alot about Eisner, and it keeps me entertained with fun stories.

              Hey, I just realized something....You're Eisner right? Coming into this board to see what everyone thinks about you huh? Of course I could be wrong :lol:

                Katzenberg is quite the idiot too. He got mad over a Diet Coke not being stocked where he was working. this guy is a nut!!

                  I have only read the first part so far. I wish I could read more, but I have too much reading to do for college. I plan on reading it on my way to Chicago for my Disney audition or after. Anything I should read first?

                    Well, let's just say there are some things in there that you don't need to be the CEO to see are off the mark. Like the references to the DLP castle being real stone. Stuff anyone could know.

                    Like if i was Eisner I'd have that Avitar! Disner? I'd have one that said Eisney!

                      It's on my birthday list. So I hope to be reading it very soon.
                      What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

                        I bought it Sunday night. I'm about 3/5 of the way through.

                          I think the book portrays a very reaistic vision of Eisner. As far as I have read (I too have very little reading time due to school), the book has pointed out Eisners early achivemets in the Disney company as well as his more recent failures.
