Dream It! Do It! Anyone reading?

I just started Marty Sklar's autobiography Dream It! Do It! and I think it is so great!! I am about 60 pages in, but I love the stories about Walt Disney and the company. Marty Sklar was an amazing Legend and Imagineer and I can't wait to read more! Anyone else reading this?

I was enjoying it until about pg. 60 or so. Suddenly it turned into nothing more than endless quotes of others' books, so I skipped a few pages. Then dry stories about the opening of (and early) Disneyland, so I skipped those, too. I started back up on pg. 87 and hope it'll stay as good as the early part of the book was.

I ordered it back in late August, and sent it over to Mr. Sklar hoping to reach him for his autograph. He didn't disappoint, and now that I have the signed copy back, I figured it was safe to start reading.

As I was nearing the end of the book, I read his section on his famous red ink thank you notes that he has written to the staff, and I remembered that Marty had sent one to me back in 2010! Honored to have one of the very note cards I read all about.
