“Unlocking The Sky” by Seth Shulman
If you think the Wright Brothers were American heros, you’ll hate this book. If you think Microsoft is an unjust monopoly, you’ll like this book. I like this book. Glenn Hammond Curtis was the true American hero of early aviation and his accomplishments dwarf the Wrights and every other early pioneer. In fact its unlikely that any single person could match his achievements in aviation. With the possible exception of Kelly Johnson.
