Things I’ve Read: Creativity Inc by Ed Catmull

This is a great non-fiction that blends business sense and Pixar’s history.  Here are some thoughts on Creativity Inc by Ed Catmull.

Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration - 'Ed Catmull', 'Amy Wallace'

Outside of this book blogging world, my day to day work is in business.  So there is a lot here that I can appreciate about management styles and company culture.  I thought it was really interesting to think about how to run a business when the business is essentially all art.

What really brought it to a new level though was the history of Pixar and how it tied to Disney.  I’m a big Disney fan and hearing the stories of the successes, failures and near-misses were really great to see.  Honestly now I just want to binge watch all the Pixar movies and send them a job application.
