REALITYLAND.

RealityLand[Book: David Koenig – 2007 – 16x23cm – 340 Pages – Few B&W photos]. This book follows Walt and his hand-picked successors as they first surreptitiously acquire enough land to hold his ambitious dreams, then go about trying to make them come true – all the while battling thieving contractors, unlike-minded executives, unscrupulous corporate raiders, uncontrollable economic forces, and public-relations nightmares. Based on a decade of research and interviews with 100 Disney insiders, this publication also reveals what it is like to work for The Mouse, what lies in the Magic Kingdom’s subterranean tunnels, and how – despite extraordinary efforts to control every aspect of “the show” – not everything goes according to plan. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Fair / Good.
