"How to Be Like Walt" by Pat Williams

In celebration of Walt's Birthday I thought I would share a review of my favorite Walt Bio (which you can pick up here for under $12!!) 

When I bought this book I almost immediately decided that I love it. Why? Because it is not your typical biography!  Not only is this half biography of Walt's astounding life and half a guide to how you can become more like Walt in your day to day life but it is littered with quotes from and about Walt sprinkled among the pages!

If you are a fan of Walt Disney this is not only the perfect biography to help you learn about his amazing accomplishments and his entire life but it is also part self-help book to help inspire you to achieve and change your own life to have the optimism and determination that Walt carried into all of his projects.  And more than that it is like mini interview after mini interview about the man who changed the face of animation, films, television, and the theme park industry. 

I have watched almost all the Walt documentaries and read a few books about him but I think I like this one best.  I think the world could use people filled with happiness, imagination, and perseverance so I think this book would be a great read for anyone with some time and an open mind... believing in magic and dreams coming true helps too!
