3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag May 30 2009
By Freddy Frustrate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The first three articles by Orville and Wilbur Wright were very good. Written by the two people on earth that really knew what they were doing.
The last section by Claxton, regretably taking up most of the book, primarily deals with the history of aviation in England before and during WWI. Unfortunately, this section was of limited interest to me.

After the Napster fiasco anything with original Wright facts rather than Curtiss finesse helps to avoid the dark shadow of copying.
