Eisner's new book

Post by ShyViolet » June 2nd, 2005, 4:53 pm

I'm interested in getting his book, "Camp," just for the heck of it, mostly to see if there's any insights on his character. I'd rather read that than DisneyWar, which was totally biased.

I'm not saying he's perfect of course, but the book has sparked my interest.

Eisner's book

Post by ShyViolet » June 3rd, 2005, 11:34 am

Oh Jeez.... :) that's this new book on his camp experiences at Keedawin (I think that's how it's spelled) that camp he went to for ten years as a kid and then sent his kids to. Plus his dad went there too so it's like an Eisner family tradition. He mentions it in Work in Progress a lot. The book talks about his childhood as well as how summer camp affects you in general.

It was supposed to come out this time last year but with all the brouhaha raised by Stanley and Roy, they had to delay it. It's supposed to come out Father's Day I think. (Which is any day now, in America. Do they have Father's Day in Britain?)

Eisner went there as a camper and a counselor. (Age 7-22) Apparently it really shaped him and his thinking, at least he says it did. I'm interested in his experiences, even if he does tart it up a bit in the old Disney tradition.

Here's the Amazon address:

Interesting.

I like how he continues to draw on the Disney legacy by referencing "Go The Distance" from Hercules.

Eisner looks so innocent in that cover picture. You would never think.... :roll:
