Jack Lindquist Provides Insider's History of Disneyland in His Book

If you're a Disney or theme park buff and like your history straight up and not watered down, you may want to check out Jack Lindquist's "In Service to the Mouse." In it, Lindquist (with Melinda J. Combs) gives a first-hand, no-holds-barred account of the history of Disneyland.

If there's anyone who could write such an account, it would be Lindquist. He started with the company as its first director of public relations in 1955 when Disneyland was not much more than a bustling construction site. His 38 years in service to Disney has provided a bounty of material that he delivers in an unflinching manner. Spars with former CEO Michael Eisner over characters in Epcot, how Disneyland's Club 33 and the Carousel of Progress came to be, and a threatened beheading by a Moroccan prince are just a few of the candid stories within the book's pages.

"In Service to the Mouse" is available for purchase on Amazon in both hardcover and Kindle editions.
