    A well crafted book with solid research. David McCullough looked into the lives of the two brothers as well as their competitors. I was amazed by the tenacity of the brothers as well as their competitors. Every great acheiement comes at a cost. That cost comes in many forms. Some of the competitors were great inventors in their own right and heroes to all of us, but they had their greedy side when it came to competition. Truth can be a disheartening revelation.

    Not as good as the Greater Journey but an inspiring and informative story about two brothers I knew very little about. Good book for history buffs and non-fiction devotees. Tossup between 3 & 4 stars. Emmet Aloysius

    A typical David McCullough book, very hard to put down. His other books are just as insightful and well written. I can’t say enough about his writings. The Wright Brothers book is insightful and makes you feel as though you were there in person observing this marvelous history. Thanks Mr. McCullough.

    Wilbur and Orville present as dull historically, but their story is not. Turns out, they are not. This is a fascinating story. One of the best books I've read in years.
  • Captivating and fulfilling. Real food for our lives.

    I am so grateful for this book. The work is incredible! I have been fulfilled with information and a story that not only motivated me, but brought excitement and real depth to what I thought I knew about these inventors. What I was taught in school or heard as stories during my life told less than a paragraph of what I learned in these pages. I feel fulfilled and hungry to learn more. My only challenge is finding a way to get my children to appreciate this story and what went into the style, work and life of the Wright Brothers. Thank you.
