Best Inexpensive Disney World Books

I am looking for opinions on inexpensive (not autographed or special edition copies) of books on WDW trivia and behind the scenes info. Not really travel guides. I have:

The Imagineering Series books
Vault of Walt
Disney Trivia by Lou Mongello
Disney Trivia from the Vault
Toughest Disney Quiz Book
WDW Hidden History
EPCOT The First 30 Years

We love reading about WDW and Disneyland and was looking to see if anyone could suggestd any other good ones. Hate buying books that end up being a ride by ride travel guide instead of behind the scenes or trivia.

Always fun to see what others have found.

i read great things about that book as well and picked it up for about $12 on eBay (Shipping included). Just arrived today, but so far, it looks great. Love the format and style to the book. Lots of good ones out there, just look up some of the reviews on eBay or Amazon, but I can vouch for the Planner by Veness!
