    The image we have of Amelia Earhart today - a tousle-haired, androgynous flier clad in shirt, silk scarf, leather jacket, and goggles - is only one of her many personas, most of which have been lost to us through the years. Through years of research and interviews with many of the surviving people who knew Amelia, Susan Butler has recreated a remarkably vivid and multifaceted portrait of this enigmatic figure.

    "The Definitive Biography"
    Overall

    Much like "Hughes" was the definitive biography of Howard Hughes, "East to the Dawn" is for Amelia Earhart. Both books show all facets of these aviation pioneers. And both dive into the little details of not only the subjects but also of the environment in which they lived.

    The narration is lovely, and easy to follow. The only negative is that the genealogy of Ms. Earhart at the beginning is a little dry (though important for a definitive biography). It picks up tremendously once the book focuses on Amelia.

    "The Charthouse Video is Better"
    Overall

    The 17 minute Fish video was inspiring, and I thought I would learn more listening to the audio book. I was wrong. The authors tried too hard to wrap up the information presented in the Fish video into a story. Unfortunately the story didn't work nor did it add anything substantial. I would highly recommend renting or purchasing the Fish video for your department and watch it as a group. Pass on the book. The only positive of the audio book is the lovely voice of Ms. Kasdan.
