Acclaimed ‘Buzz Stories’ Gets Competitively Priced Amazon Kindle Edition

Buzz Stories at Thirty Thousand Feet celebrates the life and lessons of Disney Legend Harrison “Buzz” Price from the luminaries who worked with and were inspired by him

 

 

(Los Angeles, CA, November 6, 2018) Author David Price, son of the late Harrison “Buzz” Price, has assembled a new book about his father titled Buzz Stories at Thirty Thousand Feet. Price was best known as the man

who figured out, by mathematical formulas, where best to build both California’s Disneyland and later, Walt Disney World In Florida. He was honored for his achievement with Disney’s highest honors, a “Legend” award as well as a “Window on Main Street, U.S.A.”

 

The late Marty Sklar, Disney Legend and former head of Walt Disney Imagineering, was quoted as saying, “Whether we are film, theatre or theme park fans, we thank our lucky stars that Walt Disney had a ‘Number’s Man’ who loved music, art and poetry.”

 

Everyone who ever knew Buzz has countless stories to tell of their relationship. Some are sad, some are

funny, some are enlightening, and some are not suitable for print. But all show the brilliance of the man and help explain why he is today recognized as the dean of entertainment attraction consulting.

 

Part memoir, part consulting primer, and part love story, Buzz Stories at Thirty Thousand Feet contains stories written by those with whom he shared his intelligence, humor, passion and wit. Each chapter stands on its own as a tribute to a well-rounded, intelligent, one-of-a-kind pioneer who saw numbers as a means to an end.

 

Author David Price was inspired to write Buzz Stories in response to a lifelong relationship of trust that bonded Walt & Roy Disney with Harrison “Buzz” Price, allowing contemporaries, future generations, and problem solvers to find their purpose and inspiration turning impossible dreams into realities.

 

 

David Price writes in Buzz Stories that “We need to focus more on ‘Yes If’ problem solving approaches to our daily challenges instead of the often encountered ‘No Because’ deal breaker responses we so often hear. Buzz Stories inspires and informs us how to do so.”

 

Buzz Stories at Thirty Thousand Feet is now available on amazon.com in print and competitively priced Kindle editions with additional content, comments, stories and video available at the book’s website: TheBuzzWay.com.
