  • New Disney Book

    So I was in the store and saw this book and picked it up.

    "Disney - The Mouse Betrayed : Greed, Corruption, and Children at Risk"

    ~Peter Schweizer & Rochelle Schweizer

    Thats the title. It reads on the inside front cover the following:

    Originally posted by from book
    "In 1984 Michael Eisner became CEO of Disney, the first outsider to hold that office. Almost over night Disney went Hollywood... The old Disney motto, "We create the finest in family entertainment" was removed form business cards...
    I'll start reading tonight and post thoughts and opinions.

    Incase anyone wants to look for this book. the ISBN is 0-89526-387-4

      I figured it would be something like that. Most books that trash someone or something are bias peopel, something like they had a bad weekend at WDW so they wrote a book. I found this book at the dollar store so it can't be all that. Still may be interesting.

      Funny thing is the cover list a price of $24.95




      BTW Sorry for posting in wrong forum, wasnt sure where this thread went.

                Disney WAR

                I just bought Disney War from Barns & Noble. What is funny is that when I was at the shareholder's meeting and AP reporter interviewed me and asked me about it. I honestly didn't know that much about it. All I knew is what I read about it on savedisney.com. I've read part of the prologue (too much reading to do for college!) but it seems like it will be good. Has anyone else read it?

                  I picked it up this past weekend and have just started it. Nothing sacalicious yet. Just some interesting history of Eisner and his family. I don't really know why I bought it. I'm not sure I want to read more about how corrupt Disney is under Eisner. At least I'll be informed.
                  What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?
