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