Abstract:

[This book] examines one of the most notable men of the 20th century. From his rough childhood to his success in Hollywood, Walt Disney never rested on his laurels and constantly strived to achieve the goals he conjured up. According to [the author, Disney] was complicated and difficult to understand. Even with his worldwide recognition, Disney suffered from nervous breakdowns and a constant need for money to complete his projects; he let his hobbies overshadow his family and few friends. And yet people would have done anything to work with this legendary figure.-http://www.booksinprint.com.
