Geek's Thoughts: My Pride Mastering Life’s Daily Performance by Alton Fitzgerald White is an autobiography of this accomplished Broadway performer. The book explores how hard work, dedication, and motivation took him from his childhood in the projects of Cincinnati to major roles in Broadway productions. One of his major accomplishments was playing Mufasa in the Lion King for over 4,000 performances. Alton shares his recollections and life choices as he found his way through life. He discusses some of the choices he made and how those impacted his life. He shares stories of his education both formal and informal and how he took advantage of opportunities he earned.

 

The book is a combination of inspirations, self help and a memoir as Alton reflects on his life’s journey. The format of the book is each chapter has a straight narrative and then at the end is a more reflective/analysis set of pages followed by some philosophical questions he calls “Food For Thought” and then closes with an inspirational quote or two.

I found the book to be an interesting read in terms of getting a window into what it is like to be a theater performer. The long road they must travel and the many highs and lows that come with the territory. From the Disney perspective he does share the story of how he found his way to the Lion King and reflects on this time there in a couple of chapters. My being the disneygeek that I am would have liked to have learned more about this time, I am not sure what, but I always want more Disney.
