DescriptionWalt Disney is an American hero--the creator of Mickey Mouse, and a man who changed the face of American culture. After years of research, with the full cooperation of the Disney family and access to private papers and letters, Bob Thomas produced the definitive biography of the man behind the legend--the unschooled cartoonist from Kansas City who went bankrupt on his first movie venture but became the genius who produced unmatched works of animation. Complete with a rare collection of photographs, Bob Thomas' biography is a fascinating and inspirational work that captures the spirit of Walt Disney.

Reviews for Walt Disney
Comprehensive and touching, highly engaging and it offers a really wonderful insight into the man behind the name and legacy. The author only recently passed away this March at a ripe age of ninety-something
My only quibble is if it could've been longer and more detailed.
This is the authorized biography also using the author (Bob Thomas's) interviews with the man himself and who was also able to access some part of the Disney Archives
If you want a real, honest biography that is thoroughly engaging and does not do extensive psychoanalysis by an author who never met Mr. Walt Disney, nor is a psychologist nor even has an appreciation for animation (referring to them as 'animations') then don't get Neal Gabler's book, which Diane Disney Miller (who recently passed away, bless her soul) condemned it and was upset with the portrayal of her father
If you want THE biography of Mr. Walt Disney, this is it.
If you'd like more extensive notes, particularly on the production of those iconic feature animation films he made, Michael Barrier's book 'The Animated Man' is a great read too, but is more suited for the hardcore Disney fanatic. by Lois Romanowicz
