'The Ride Of A Lifetime' by Robert Iger: How To Chart An Incredible Career

Robert Iger started working for ABC 45 years ago as a young Studio Manager. I'm quite sure that when he started his job at ABC he had no idea where the journey would take him, culminating with his leadership role as CEO of Disney. While at Disney, Mr. Iger has added tremendous value to the Disney brand by acquiring highly creative and energetic companies such as Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and 21st Centry Fox, melding these companies into a creative juggernaut much greater, and more valuable, than the sum of their individual parts.
