A Pleasant Surprise

I am a big fan of business biographies, and especially a fan of anything on Disney. So I was excited to get this. But it turns out, this is neither about Disney or a biography in any way. And this is not a bad thing. Eisner (who also reads the book) tells a very nice tale of camp life, and the listen is an enjoyable change from the normal business tales you normally hear from him. Most people know Eisner as the hard as nails former CEO of Disney (if you want to know more about this side of his life, I would suggest Kim Master's "Keys To The Kingdom" or James B. Stewart's "Disney War"). In "Camp", Eisner shows is light hearted, softer side. Hearing tales of Eisner as a young boy, and how his visits to the Camp shaped his life is both fascinating and entertaining at once. I would highly suggest this listen.
