Praise For…

"I just finished reading the outstanding Women of Walt Disney Imagineering; I found it to be a compelling and truthful read from the perspective of a dozen very talented women, each bringing something unique to the table. The commonalities and differences in each writer's individual journey offers a colorful illustration of life in the workshops and offices. . . . Aside from describing the obvious challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated workforce, I can't recall when there's been a book that has given the reader such realistic insights into daily life at Walt Disney Imagineering, warts and all. I'm happy and proud to have known, worked with, and learned from these women Imagineers over the years. This book should be of interest to anyone in the industry or aspiring to be an Imagineer, regardless of gender. In my opinion it's one of the best peeks behind the curtain of Walt Disney Imagineering published so far."—Tom Morris, former Executive Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering

"My own career as an Imagineer covers approximately the same era reflected upon in Women of Walt Disney Imagineering. Many of the 12 authors I know well and have collaborated with during our long careers together. Like all Imagineers, they have stories to tell of adventure, inspiration, grit, hard work, and camaraderie, all of which one will find between the covers of this book. But as women, and as individuals with strong personal points of view, they bring another perspective to this important period of Imagineering history. This book delivers additional information and interpretation to stories we thought we already knew and does so through the very personal and honest anecdotes and opinions of its authors. . . . Women of Walt Disney Imagineering is a universal story of challenge, opportunity, setback, and triumph. We can all learn from that. But perhaps someone's daughter somewhere will learn a bit more, a bit more about the vision, persistence, courage, and zest for life that it will take for her to succeed in the world."—Joe Rohde, former Portfolio Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering

"This compilation of 12 short stories by women of Imagineering should be read by all who aspire to a career where achievement is respected and nurtured. Featuring their trials, confidence, perseverance and finally recognition, these women share their thoughts on how to succeed and believe in yourself. Valuable lessons and guidance for those who wish to enter a creative environment and have fun as well."—Frank Stanek, Chairman, Stanek Global Advisors, LLC
