Disneyland books - question for Richard

Richard - do you have any book recommendations when it comes to Disneyland? Or anyone else for that matter.

Sorry for the non-magic question, but I know Richard is a big fan of Disneyland so just wanted to tap into his knowledge!

Is there something in particular that you want to know more about the park?
History? Behind the scenes? Getting around?

I am interested in the business side. It just seems quite a magical business to be in. I am still astonished at how expensive these rides can be.

Like 150-300 million dollars on the theme park rides based on Hollywood movies.

I am pretty good at using Amazon - so I am sure I will find something of interest there. I just wanted to pick Richard's brain since he seems to love Disneyland as much as he does magic. lol

Radiator Springs Racers at Carsland in California Adventure is a $300 million dollar ride.

I've heard that the new Pirates ride in Shanghai Disneyland is a $500 million dollar ride.

There are no books that explain how these rides are built, or why they cost so much. Disney likes to keep its secrets.
