  • New Walt Bio: "Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination"

    Apparently, a new bio by author Neal Gabler is an interesting read. I'm curious. I may just pick this one up...

    Now a new biography of Walt Disney has cast a fresh light on one of the most elusive characters of modern American history. The picture that has emerged is far from the genial figure of legend. Disney has emerged as a troubled man, a lonely and reclusive depressive. He also notoriously ill-treated his staff and close friends and was a ferociously right-wing anti-communist during the Forties and Fifties.

    I'm currently reading it for a major paper for one of my classes and it's a very interesting read so far, but i'm only at page 200. It goes more in dept than any other biography of Walt that I've read so far.
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

        I received the book as a gift in early November and reviewed it here on MC November 21:
