Summary

An inspiring biography of one of the most influential and beloved figures of the 21st century, based on more than 1,000 interviews.
How to Be Like is a "character biography" series: biographies that also draw out important lessons from the life of their subjects. In this new book - by far the most exhaustive in the series - Pat Williams tackles one of the most influential people in recent history.
While many recent biographies of Walt Disney have reveled in the negative, this audiobook takes an honest but positive look at the man behind the myth. For the first time, the book pulls together all the various strands of Disney's life into one straightforward, easy-to-listen-to tale of imagination, perseverance, and optimism. Far from a preachy or oppressive tome, this audiobook scrapes away the minutiae to capture the true magic of a brilliant maverick.

Critic reviews

"How to Be Like Walt is a fitting tribute to Walt's memory and an important contribution to the Disney legacy . . . Now more than ever, we need people with the qualities Walt had: optimism, imagination, creativity, leadership, integrity, courage, boldness, perseverance, commitment to excellence, reverence for the past, hope for tomorrow, and faith in God."

for disney fans

if your like me and love all thing disney this is for you, the teaching and lifestyle choices of walt disney will make you think about how you can look at thing with in your life.
my only criticism for this book is that it goes on about God quite a bit I don't mind it so much but I'm not a Christian and walt disney was and it's a book about him so it's not so bad
