"Lovely and surprising . . . This delightful book is about finance, creative genius, workplace harmony, and luck."--Fortune "Enchanting,"--New York Times "I love this book I think it is brilliant."--Ed Catmull, cofounder and president of Pixar Animation, president of Disney Animation, and coauthor of the bestseller Creativity Inc. The revelatory saga of Pixar's rocky start and improbable success After Steve Jobs was dismissed from Apple in the early 1990s, he turned his attention to a little-known graphics company he owned called Pixar. One day, out of the blue, Jobs called Lawrence Levy, a Harvard-trained lawyer and executive to whom he had never spoken before. He hoped to persuade Levy to help him pull Pixar back from the brink of failure. This is the extraordinary story of what happened next: how Jobs and Levy concocted and pulled off a highly improbable plan that transformed Pixar into one of Hollywood's greatest success stories. Levy offers a masterful, firsthand account of how Pixar rose from humble beginnings, what it was like to work so closely with Jobs, and how Pixar's story offers profound lessons that can apply to many aspects of our lives. "Part business book and part thriller--a tale that's every bit as compelling as the ones Pixar tells in its blockbuster movies. It's also incredibly inspirational, a story about a team that took big risks and reaped the rewards . . . I loved this book and could not put it down."--Dan Lyons, best-selling author of Disrupted "A natural storyteller, Levy offers an inside look at the business and a fresh, sympathetic view of Jobs."--Success Magazine An Amazon Best Book of 2016 in Business & Leadership - A top pick on Fortune's Favorite Booksof 2016 - A 2017 Axiom Business Book Award winner in Memoir/Biography
