Trying to Find the Name of this Disney Book

So I was flipping through the tv channels a couple days ago and caught mention of a book about how Disney went about acquiring the land for "The Florida Project" and how they used different names and corporations to do it. If anyone knows the name of this book it would be greatly appreciated. I believe the book is relatively new or brand new. Thanks in advance!

The biography of Walt Disney by Neal Gabler released in 2006 does a good job in covering this period of Disney's life. The book is a little long but if you like detail it does a good job of that. It is also a great biography of Walt Disney in general.
