"As an infrequent visitor to Anaheim’s main attraction, I am surprised that I was as enchanted by Strodder’s book as my insider friend. For me, it is a delightful peek into the world Walt Disney created and the company that keeps it evolving. For my friend, it adds depth and detail to a subject he knows well. I’d give it five stars out of five,’ Manny said. I would, too.” RoadTripAmerica.com

Chris Strodder, the author of The Disneyland Encyclopedia, has come up with a unique, thoroughly enjoyable follow-up called The Disneyland Book of Lists . As the subtitle says, it's unofficial, unauthorized and unprecedented, with unprecedented being the key word. It's the type book you don't necessarily have to read from cover to cover to enjoy. You can pick it up, open up to any page, and find compelling, interesting and even educational information about the Happiest Place on Earth, which celebrates its 60th anniversary on July 17.” Chuck Schmidt, Goofy About Disney
"This book is so stuffed with information that it is very likely even the most hardcore Disney fan will learn something new. Those fans will definitely enjoy the lists that dig deep into Disneyland’s history (Rolly Crump’s 5 Toughest Assignments and Bob Gurr’s 10 Most Memorable Events at Disneyland). While this book would be an enjoyable read for any Disney fan particularly those who have made the trip to Anaheim once or twice or those who are are planning a trip the true target audience for the majority of this book is the frequent visitor to the California park. The list format makes this book an easy read or more so a book to pick up and browse through and a perfect pick me up when you’re suffering from Disney withdrawals.” The Disney World Dads
"It really is amazing to think that anyone can even come up with 250 lists about our beloved theme park, but Strodder does. . . . I found the lists overwhelmingly accessible and intriguing. Honestly, who doesn’t want to know the 16 Splendid Disneyland Restrooms, the approximate speed of 15 Disneyland attractions and 13 Disneyland-Related Sentences and Phrases That Are 13 Words Long.” Live Fast Die Poor
