Inside the Dream: The Personal Story of Walt Disney

Inside the Dream: The Personal Story of Walt Disney Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walt Disney's impact on American popular culture was, and continues to be, immeasurable. Told through the emotionally engaging words of those who knew, worked with, and studied him, Inside the Dream is by far the most revelatory portrait to date of this remarkable man. Contributions from a virtual Who's Who of more than seventy actors, writers, and historians are woven together in a frank and heartfelt text written by the authors of the ABC television documentary Walt: The Man Behind the Myth. Although he died in 1966, his legacy lives on in so many ways. We sometimes forget that behind the entertainment company and the theme parks that bear his name, there was indeed a man called Walt Disney.

Throughout Inside the Dream, personal stories from those who knew Walt best — his family — reveal a gentle man with extraordinary gifts. A creative genius and tireless innovator who worked long hours and never stopped thinking about his next endeavor. Walt was also a devoted family man who deeply loved his wife and daughters and carved out time for them each and every day. Filled with rarely seen historic photographs drawn from the Disney family's personal archives and found during exhaustive research. Inside the Dream offers readers a unique journey through time in search of a man who has become an icon of American culture.

Synopsis:

A stunning, elaborately illustrated biography of the man who had an immeasurable impact upon American culture. This timely biography, told through the captivating and vivid words of those who knew, and studied Walt Disney, provides the most revelatory protrait to date of the man who has become an icon of American culture. More than 70 men and women were interviewed, including friends, employees, and historians, adversaries and rivals, and, most especially, family members, who add a special "private" contest to a very public work.
