Of course when I saw Kathy Merlock Jackson's book, Walt Disney Conversations on the library shelves, I scooped it up. The book compiles several interviews conducted with Disney from early on in 1929 to right before his death in 1966. It was interesting to read society's opinons of Disney and his organization at the time and to see how his work was valued as it happened.

At times the book is repetative- seems like all of the journalists wanted to point out that Disney had $40 when he first came to...more
I have read a lot about Disney and the company and have to say that this has been one of the most enlightening reads. This is first hand source material. Many articles are interviews. Some are framed by the interviewer as an article- but each shows the humanity of this multi-facited businessman, artist, and father. Wonderfully telling. Great selection that get any fan closer to the myth of a man than they will find in other books.

This book was good and interesting. It told of the plans for DisneyWorld and Disneyland. The thing I liked the most was that Mr. Walt Disney is a true sucess story. He arrived with one suitcase half full of clothes and the rest drawing supplies. The book also had all of his movies in it. He gave some advice and quotes and they are both in this book. He wasthe voice of Mickey Mouse that mouse it told the story of how mickey mouse came to be.
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of interviews of Walt Disney. The transcript of his testimony in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee is what drew me to this, and the interview conducted by Cecil B. DeMille was an added bonus.
Great book to read if you want to understand the man behind the mouse...good insight.
