Great Books About Disneyland

What are the best books about Disneyland? I will begin the topic with a vote for a book I recently co-authored entitled "Fireworks! If the Government Ran the Fairest Kingdom of Them All (A Very Unauthorized Fantasy)". It is not authorized by any Disney company, but it is a love-letter to Disneyland. It is on Amazon at http://tinyurl.com/2b5s94v and at Barnes & Noble's website. It also is in the Apple iBookstore.

A couple of books readily

A couple of books readily come to mind. My first choice is "Disneyland: Inside Story" by Randy Bright. The book's one of the best general histories of the Park I've seen; it's too bad the Randy dies before he could update his book. A very close second on my list of best books about the Park is "Disneyland: the Nickel Tour" by Bruce Gordon and David Mumford; it's a fun history of the Park with some great postcard views of classic Disneyland.

A couple of official books about the Park that I like are "The Imagineering Field Guide to Disneyland", "Disneyland: 25 Years of Magic", and "Disneyland: Then Now and Forever"; the first is a great little guide to the little details that make up the Park, and the other two are my favorite coffee table books about the Park. (I haven't read the books put out in the mid-60s that were written by Marty Sklar yet, but I'm told they're very good books as well.)

Anyone else got any other books they'd like to recommend?
