Neal Gabler is the first Disney biographer to have access to the Disney archives, lending authenticity to this work. That access does not mean that the biography paints a whitewashed picture of this icon of twentieth-century American culture. Indeed, what emerges is a complex man with his own collection of human strengths and weaknesses. Optimistic and confident of his own vision and tenacious enough to stay his course in the face of obstacles, he was at the same time demanding and short on compassion and forgiveness for perceived betrayals. Leonardo Leoncavallo's narration is concise and straightforward. His relaxed tempo and clear enunciation keep the reader engaged in the story of this pioneer of animation, film, and television.
