I received this book as from Goodreads first reads.

I enjoyed this book. I had heard of Alberto Santos-Dumont before but hadn't really paid attention to why he was mentioned. I enjoyed the illustrations. I enjoyed learning about Alberto and his flying machines in this book. The part that stood out to me was about his friend Louis Cartier making him the first man's wristwatch so that he could check the time while he was flying his dirigible. I did enjoy learning about the pioneer of flight!
