The Pixar Touch is a lively chronicle of Pixar Animation Studios' history and evolution, and the "fraternity of geeks" who shaped it. With the help of visionary businessman Steve Jobs and animating genius John Lasseter, Pixar has become the gold standard of animated filmmaking, beginning with a short special effects shot made at Lucasfilm in 1982 all the way up through the landmark films Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, and others.

George and his best friend, Annie, haven't had any space adventures for a while, and they're missing the excitement. But not for long.... Seriously strange things start happening. Banks are handing out free money; supermarkets can't charge for their produce, so people are getting free food; and aircraft are refusing to fly. It looks like the world's biggest and best computers have all been hacked. George and Annie will travel further into space than ever before in order to find out who is behind it.

Enjoyed the story... Found the 'teaching bits' harder to get into this time as they weren't really part of the story, more like a review of the previous chapter and sometimes they seemed to go on for a bit too long... However, got used to it as it went on. Great story, but felt that the ending was a bit rushed... Worth listening to though!
