My Pride (Broadway's Record-Breaking Lion King): Mastering Life's Daily Performance by Alton Fitzgerlad White

Drawing on his own life and career and the rich lore of The Lion King, Alton Fitzgerald White, Broadway's longest running "King," delivers his message of service -- taking responsibility for and deriving happiness from commonplace achievements -- as a philosophy that anyone can get through each day with satisfaction, pride and a sense of accomplishment.

If you've ever wondered how an actor can perform the same role hundreds of times without burning out, in White's book you'll meet someone who does it for thousands more with unbated joy and renewal of purpose. From his life experience, White has learned the secret of tapping his inner resources to meet the challenge of routine and repetition in work and relationships.
