Travels with Figment on the Road in Search of Disney Dreams
by Marty Sklar and Bob Weis

Travels with Figment: On the Road in Search of Disney Dreams is the final book from Disney Legend Marty Sklar. In his fifty-four years at Disney-among his assignments in his first ten years was writing personal materials for Walt Disney-Marty travelled the globe, creating Disney magic and committing his adventures to memory.
After his retirement from Disney, Marty kept on traveling, with book tours sharing his memoir Dream It Do It My Half-Century Creating Disney's Magic Kingdoms and his book full of Imagineering secrets, One Little Spark Mickey's Ten Commandments and The Road to Imagineering.

He embodied the very best of Disney, from his bold originality to his joyful optimism and relentless drive for excellence. He was also a powerful connection to Walt himself. No one was more passionate about Disney than Marty, and we'll miss his enthusiasm, his grace, and his indomitable spirit.Travels with Figment is a collection of tales told memorably by Marty, spanning the globe and nearly six decades. Travel along and enjoy the truly fascinating adventures of this exceptional man.
