The Animated Man: A Life of Walt Disney is an autobiography of Walt Disney, written by Michael Barrier.
Walt Disney (1901-1966) was one of the most significant creative forces of the twentieth century, a man who made a lasting impact on the art of the animated film, the history of American business, and the evolution of twentieth-century American culture. Based on decades of research in the Disney studio's archives and dozens of public and private archives in the United States and Europe, The Animated Man offers illuminating accounts of Disney's childhood and young adulthood in rural Missouri and Kansas City. Barrier describes how Disney transformed himself from Midwestern farm boy to scrambling young businessman to pioneering artist and, finally, to entrepreneur on a grand scale.
