Over the years, I’ve read a lot of Disney books. A. LOT. But, recently one crossed my path that was different from all the rest. Why? Because this book’s target audience is . . . MEN!
I know, I know. . . I’m NOT a man. But, I’m a sucker for a good Disney book and I’m always excited to see what’s new from The Intrepid Traveler. So, I anxiously awaited the arrival of this book. I started reading it in bed at night. And I laughed and laughed. I read excerpts of it out loud to my husband. Then, I took it with me on a trip to South Carolina. I sat on the plane reading it, and I laughed some more (I’m pretty sure the two guys sitting beside me thought I was insane!) I sat around a campfire with my friends and I read the book – and I laughed. And they laughed AT me. Then, I read excerpts to them and they laughed WITH me.
About Ears of Steel
Walt Disney World is for little kids, princesses, and dorks, right? WRONG!
There’s more than enough at WDW to keep the two-fisted, thrill-seeking, hard-drinking, meat-eating he-man of the house happy as a caveman with a mammoth rib.
Bart Scott comes to the aid of moms and girlfriends everywhere with the only guidebook specifically designed to convince the football-watching, beer-swilling, couch potato they love that a trip to WDW will not only reduce the whining in the household and give them continued access to those special favors, but will actually be FUN for them.
Scott’s the real deal — a real guy, with big appetites, firm convictions, and a healthy disdain for pretentiousness in all its forms. He’s also big enough to admit that the toughest hombre’s heart melts a little when his own little princess falls under the spell of Disney magic.
Ears of Steel is an honest, straight-from-the-shoulder, and frequently hilarious look at everything in Walt Disney World that keeps real men coming back, with all the sissy stuff either glossed over or ignored entirely.
About Bart Scott
Bart describes himself as “a manly man. A guy’s guy. I love football, beer, cars, beautiful women, beer, a good steak, the occasional cigar, beer, Walt Disney World . . . “ That’s right – he’s not afraid to admit that he’s a grown man who loves Walt Disney World. Bart is a freelance writer who lives with his family in the Chicago area.
So here’s the thing . . .
I love Walt Disney World and I love to laugh and I seriously love this book! Honestly, while this book is targeted at men – especially those who are skeptical about taking their families to Walt Disney World – I would seriously recommend it to anyone. If you’re like me – a Disney lover who likes to let loose and have fun sometimes, buy the book. If you’re a wife with a hubby who acts like Disney is a silly destination, buy the book – and share it with your hubby (or read it to him, if he’s not a reader – I promise you’ll laugh together). If you’re a man who already loves Disney, buy the book.
In this book, Bart talks about everything from thrill rides to food , from extras to bathrooms. Yes, he even talks about bathrooms. And it’s hilarious. I wonder why nobody has thought of this before. Maybe the world wasn’t ready for Ears of Steel until right now.
