This book is for you if you: love Disney Animation and classic movies, respect Walt Disney and his imagination, and are fascinated by the company. This book is not for you if you: think Disney is perfect, dislike Disney and are looking for reasons the company should have failed, or are in some other way the Scrooge of animation.

Koenig structures this book into sections, then the sections into small chapters, each providing priceless information (or 9.99 worth of information...) about Disney Animations string of movies from Snow White to The Hunchback of Notre Dame (in the original text). It does skip some films (The Black Cauldron), but it is chocked full of interesting details, fun anecdotes, and open ended research. You will not read this book and feel you have mastered Disney animation and it's history. You should leave this book with a need to know more, an interest in certain films or animators, or an all around appreciation.

A solid 3.75 stars, a fast read, and a hell of a good time.
