To Pixar and Beyond
- By: Lawrence Levy
- Narrated by: Bronson Pinchot
- Length: 7 hrs and 54 mins
One day in November 1994, Lawrence Levy received a phone call out of the blue from Steve Jobs, whom he'd never met, offering him a job running Pixar, a little-known company that had already lost Jobs $50 million. With Pixar's prospects looking bleak, it was with some trepidation that Levy accepted the position. After a few weeks he discovered that the situation was even worse than he'd imagined.
Truly a great book!

Fantastic until the last couple of chapters
Fascinating insight into the financial management and the business negotiations around Pixars’ successes. Written in an accessible and captivating manner. Loved it right up to the point he left Pixar and began to study with Tibetan Monks.
