I purchased the first Disney Imagineering book 12 years ago shortly after it came out, and I had to have read that baby cover to cover ten times over. That was before almost everything Disney related was readily available on these interwebs we love so much, so it was - and still is - a real gem.
Fast forward all those years and while we can google or wiki almost anything and get instant gratification, there's still something to be said for a large format, high quality, full color book like this one. 'Imagineering 2', as I've started to call it, picks up where the first book left off in terms of attractions covered. As you can imagine the Imagineers have covered a lot of ground in the past decade plus.
New attractions at the parks across the globe - and even ones announced for the next few years - are covered in both textual and photo detail. Yes, that means more concept art than you can imagine. Plus the pages have tons of 'goodies' packed in them, special pull-outs and things. The behind the scenes look at the Imagineering process is also detailed as well, which we fans always love to read about.
I can't recommend it enough if you are a Disney fan - I just hope that we don't have to wait another 12 years for another one!
