Secret Stories of Walt Disney World: Things You Never Knew You Never Knew by Jim KorkisOver the past several months, Ive been buying some of Jim Korkis books. Thinking that this one was no different than the others, I thought Id take a chance. All of the others seemed badly written. I personally was thinking Oh great, I have to read ANOTHER Korkis book. But after reading this book, I really was really enthused. This was the first Jim Korkis book that I actually was enthused with reading, making me think that this book isnt just another Korkis book. Although the chapters were pretty short still, they seemed to be in a logical order and well thought out and researched. I actually felt I was reading a book that was written by another person other than him - this book was just that great! Yes, the book had a few thuds, but no book is ever 100% perfect, when dealing with Disney Parks trivia. As a reader, youll read through some of the snippets that he once told other Disney employees about - but even this history is covered in the Foreword chapter of the book.
Prepare yourself for long informative chapters. Although the Kindle version combines each of the snippets into chapters according to Part-sections (for those reading with (time left to end of chapter)), I can definitely tell he wrote them in logical orderings.
I didnt like the second part as much as all the others. Basing the second part on the hotels of Disney World, wasnt really a thrilling aspect, as these arent things a normal visitor could see without walking into each hotel at least once. However, its interesting to know just how much of this trivia I didnt know, as a precursor to a time when I can take a stroll into these hotels in the many years to come in my life.
Although you won me over on this book, I think Ill stick with reading books outside of yours, and take an occasional chance when need-be.
