"Commendably, Howard describes the technical features of their work in a fashion quite comprehensible to lay readers. A fine job." (Publishers Weekly)
I applaud Fred Howard's book for its research and its tenacity. However, it took me a long, long time to get through it. What drudgery. I love history, and am sure I learned a lot by reading this tome. However, the man I admire the most is narrator Larry McKeever. How he managed to read this entire work is a marvel. I recommend this biography to anyone who has an absolute fascination with flight, with Dayton, with Kitty Hawk, etc., but be forewarned that it will take you places you'll wonder why you went. I used to read The Doctors Mayo to put me to sleep during the ten years of my advanced education. This book would have worked even better.
