5.0 out of 5 stars Good Ole' Bing Crosby!, Sept. 13 2010
Ah, yes...two significant pieces of literature coexisting to meet the entertainment needs of any-aged audience. In this gem, Wind in the Willows and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow are separately brought to life by Disney's team of animation geniuses, and the result is an often eerie, musically charged and timeless tale of life, love, honesty, fear and adventure, that can be enjoyed over and over by the whole family.

My favorite of the two stories, the mysterious and dark tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman, is brought to life by the delightful voice talent of Bing Crosby himself, as he serenades you through a narration of the creepy old tale, while also lending his flawless vocals to the films musical numbers. The result of the marriage of classic literature, talented actors, slapstick humor and incredible artistry, The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, will find a place on your top-ten animated films list as you and your children enjoy the film over and over! This DVD is also a hot-commodity at Halloween!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Entertainment, Questionable Motives!?, Nov. 29 2009
To me, the purpose of this book was mere SALES!!! The "research" seems very off and lacks thourough observation under DIFFERENT controlled situations.

Anyone could have written a book based on personal conspiracy-theories and illustrations of specific government propaganda. For instance, I failed to be convinced that the drop in crime in the year 2000 was based on legallizing abortion 20 years prior. I believe the real reason for crime reduction was FEAR of being caught, brought about by the induction of DNA tesing and various forensic technologies. Technologies that became WELL known to the public via news and TV shows like Cold Case Files and CSI (which 1st aired in 2000)!!!!! Don't you think maybe crime is decreasing because tecnology is INcreasing?!!! What makes MY theory any less believable than the authors? Hey, maybe I'll write a book about my theories and sell it to nieve victims of crime!!!

This books publication is another example of a "Shock Doctrine" (which IS a great book by Naomi Klein?), that is specifically preying on consumers when they are vulnerable and thirsty for change and answers. I also thought the book was written arrogant and poorly, with alot of mindless babble lacking originating sources. Simply another unwanted gift of Media Mind Control, wrapped in fancy paper, only the agenda (which, in this case is book sales) changes!

Read this book with the same state of mind you would watch TV...it's just entertainment. And for those of you who don't already think beyond what you're told by the media (hopefully VERY few of you), this book may inspire some sort of out-of-the-box, new-age thinking beyond the surface.
