If you love Pixar movies this is a great book to read. The history of each movie made me love them a little more. Toy Story will always have a special place in my heart. I had also read Steve Jobs biography book before this and found that useful.

The story of how Pixar Animation Studios came into existence is remarkable not just for the movies they make, but because its own history is in itself a Cinderella story.

The Pixar Touch by David Price tells of how the company began as a dream of combining the love of animated films with computer graphics. This is the Pixar we now know, but what is less known is how industry wanted the company to be something else, something more profitable at the time. As ownership passed from noted technology shakers George Lucas to Steve Jobs, core members within the company remained committed to their goal of a creating the very first feature length animated film.

Good look at the history of Pixar and how they developed some of their software, but this book will not give you many tips for your small business.
