My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I really enjoyed this book on multiple levels. If you are interested in computer animation, Pixar, fostering creativity in your work environment, business management, how to engage and be part of a creative team, then this book has something for you.

Ed Catmull, president of Pixar Animation and Disney Animation, shares the evolution of Pixar from part of Lucasfilm to computer hardware purveyor to the animation studio it is today. He shares lots of behind the scenes stories about Pixar: how their films are developed, how they faced and solved numerous potential disasters, how failure isn't evil but rather part of the process, the importance of candor in feedback.

Creating and successfully maintaining a creative work culture is an ongoing endeavor and I completely respect his continued commitment to it.

A great resource for managers and people who work in creative teams and a fun look behind the curtain of Pixar and Disney animation as well.
