I wanted to read more nonfiction this year. This was one of the first books that I chose. I have to say, it didn't disappoint.
I had no idea exactly what was behind Pixar. The creative minds, the practices they employed, the cultural changes that they were involved in - fascinating.
Ed Catmull wanted to work for Disney since he was a child. When he had his opportunity, they offered him a job as an engineer creating rides in their theme parks. He took a pass. It wasn't his passion, it wasn't what he wanted to do. But honestly, how many of us pass up on our dream because it was just a little shy of perfect?
All the greats are here: Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, George Lucas and the list just goes on. I found this book fascinating and riveting. I was inspired. 5 stars.
