Reviews

"Well-crafted. . . . [Price tells] the Pixar story briskly and with great clarity."--"The Boston Globe""It's a rags-to-riches story, a classic example of the cream rising to the top. And it's as entertaining and heartwarming as, say, a Pixar movie. It's "The Pixar Touch," and its topsy-turvy, roller-coaster plot has all the thrills of a ride at Disneyland. In this unauthorized account of Pixar, journalist David A. Price paints the most complete picture yet of the little studio that could. He talks to scores of insiders, Pixar colleagues and members of the 'fraternity of geeks, ' true believers in the potential of the pixel to revolutionize animation. With the precision of a technical writer and the sensitivity of an artist, Price spins the story of the Pixar vision, its achievement, and its art."--"The Christian Science Monitor" "Using vivid character profiles and lucid descriptions of complicated technology, Price gives the reader a behind-the-scenes look more accessible than any television special. His admiration for Pixar is palpable but contagious, and "The Pixar Touch" is an engaging modern history that tears back the Wizard's curtain without breaking the spell."--"The Buffalo News" "Price is a smart reporter and a solid writer. He deftly makes computer arcana palatable, even interesting. And he is excellent when explaining how much work went into creating the complex images we take for granted today." --"The New York Times Book Review ""[Price] weaves an absorbing chronicle that functions not only as the history of an unconventional business but also serves as witness to the dawn of a digital revolution in mass entertainment." --"Newsday" "You don't have to belong to the computer-animation generation to enjoy "The Pixar Touch." This history of the company that made the world's first fully computer-animated feature is an entertaining look at digital derring-do." -"The Dallas Morning News"
