The Wisdom of Walt

Disneyland began as one man’s dream on a park bench one Saturday afternoon. Today, it is a symbol of success and an example of entrepreneurial leadership around the world. In Jeff Barnes’ The Wisdom of Walt, discover how Walt Disney took action to transform his dreams into the concrete reality we still benefit from sixty years later.

Disneyland’s story is one every student of success should know. Like a great theme park attraction, The Wisdom of Walt takes its readers on a storytelling ride with many twists, turns, drops, and surprise endings.
