This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
An inspiring biography of one of the most
influential and beloved figures of the 21st century, based on more than a thousand interviews.
"I've read every book that has ever been written about Walt Disney, going back to some that were published in the 1930s. [How to Be Like Walt] is by far the most enjoyable to read of them all!"
Tim O'Day, Disney Scholar
"How to Be Like Walt is a fitting tribute to Walt's memory and an important contribution to the Disney legacy . . . Now more than ever, we need people with the qualities Walt had: optimism, imagination, creativity, leadership, integrity, courage, boldness, perseverance, commitment to excellence, reverence for the past, hope for tomorrow, and faith in God."
How to Be Like is a "character biography" series: biographies that also draw out important lessons from the life of their subjects. In this new book-by far the most exhaustive in the series-Pat Williams tackles one of the most influential people in recent history.
While many recent biographies of Walt Disney have reveled in the negative, this book takes an honest but positive look at the man behind the myth. For the first time, the book pulls together all the various strands of Disney's life into one straightforward, easy-to-read tale of imagination, perseverance, and optimism. Far from a preachy or oppressive tome, this book scrapes away the minutiae to capture the true magic of a brilliant maverick.

An excellent read!
"How to Be Like Walt" by Pat Williams is a truly refreshing read.
Being a Disney fan is what attracted me to this book, and Pat's telling of Walt's story, successes and failures, greatnesses and flaws, solidified my love for Walt and all that he accomplished. While my true hope is only found in my savior Jesus Christ, I believe learning and applying life lessons from Walt will make the world a better place.
Thank you Pat for your time and dedication to researching and sharing the story of a truly beloved American innovator and hero, Walt Disney!
I had to get this book for a school project, and it turned out to be one of my new favorites. It can get complicated at some times, and I would say it is not meant for readers of all ages, but I would definitely recommend this book to others. It was fantastic and helped me learn more about Walt Disney as a person.
