It seems that everything McCullough writes is educational, entertaining and inspiring. My only disappointment with The Wright Brothers was that it was not nearly as lengthy as some of my other McCullough favorites, particularly "The Great Bridge," a spectacular history of the Brooklyn Bridge and the literary equivalent of an all day sucker. To make up for its (relative) brevity, the Kindle Edition of the Wright Brothers includes numerous fascinating photos. McCullogh's writing is thorough, clean and engaging. His storytelling intuition and insight are superior. The author is so very good at his craft that I no longer look down upon Dayton, Ohio (the Wright Brothers home town).
Read The Wright Brothers and you'll not only gain delightful insights into the genius and persistence of two of history's most amazing men, you'll also learn of their exceptional family, emerging industrial America and flight-crazed Europe during the dawning of the age of aviation.
