Every Guest is a Hero reviewed on Communicore Weekly podcast

Thank you George and Jeff for the terrific review of Every Guest is a Hero you did on this week’s Communicore Weekly podcast! Excerpt:

"Fans that want a deeper look at the attractions will love this, as well as people who are interested in designing attractions. If you have an interest in learning more about what goes on behind the scenes of the attractions, story-wise, make sure you pick it up."

For those of you who aren’t George or Jeff, you can listen to the podcast HERE. The book review begins at the 16-min. mark, but the entire podcast is fun listening.

So it turns out that Western Illinois University offers a class called “Disney Communications”…and they’ve been using Every Guest is a Hero as one of their textbooks. Yesterday the class visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, and it was my honor and pleasure to lead them on a guided “mythic tour” of the park. It was an exhausting day, but a lot of fun. Such a bright, perceptive, and engaged group of students!

Between Disney reviews Every Guest is a Hero

This just in: a very detailed and insightful review of Every Guest is a Hero on the Between Disney book review blog. Excerpt:

"As the title says, Every Guest is a Hero! We love the adventure we find in the Disney parks, transporting us from the ordinary to the special worlds within the themed lands. Adam Berger provides us insight on how Imagineers have set up our experiences so they speak to us in an epic mythic way. And he provides us with a toolbox to dig into Disney attractions on our own and discover that we are the hero.”
