I thought I was prepared to delve into the mysterious life of America’s first billionaire Howard Hughes (1905-1976), but I was wrong. For the man who had it all at a young age, the details in the book present a much more bizarre personality than I envisioned. HRH was a true control fanatic and eccentric genius with gifted talents and visionary mind for science. Sadly, America’s first billionaire never sought or cultivated one true friendship. I’m sure author Richard Hack enjoyed the entire research process and his piece is terrific all around.
