As a Brit, I had always had a vague notion that Howard Hughes was a mainstay of the US economy, an aviator, and an eccentric.
I had no idea that he was as wacked in the head as he obviously became in later life - the readings from his memos in the "Operations Manual" for his company are astounding.
Thouroughly enjoyed this book - the narrator is nicely neutral adding to the experience without ever becoming irritating.
Give it a go.
