5.0 su 5 stelle From Orville Wright Himself... 14 marzo 2004
Di Anonymous - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
I hate to confess that I didn't even know that the Wright Brothers had written anything later in life. This was so great to read about how Orville Wright and his brother and family really felt about their quest.
As co-owner of an aviation restoration company that works on older aircraft, this book meant more to me than most.
What I have noticed about most pilots is that except for those who get involved in the military or through chance - most pilots are almost "meant" to fly from the start. It is something that inspires them from the time they are kids. With the cost of flying and owning an aircraft, not every kid pursues his dream, but for Orville and the rest - once they are up in the sky it makes it all worthwhile.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Dream Come True! 23 dicembre 2001
Di Daniel L. Berek - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
A full quarter century before the historic first flight of a powered, controlled heavier-than-air aircraft, a minister named Milton Wright presented two young boys with a model Penaud "helicoptere." As Wilbur and Orville Wright observed, "A toy so delicate lasted only a short time in thehands of small boys, but its memory was abiding,"
This wonderful book chronicles the careers of Orville and Wilbur Wright, drawing upon the writings of the brothers themselves and Fred C. Kelly, their authorized biographer and confidant for more than three decades.
What makes the story of the Wright brothers so compelling is their deliberate, patient perserverance to discover how to make the dream of flight reality.

4.0 su 5 stelle Dreaming about Flying? Orville Wright did. 29 dicembre 1999
Di Ross Youngblood - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This is a great book. One of my favorite quotes is when Orville was asked when he got the biggest "kick" out of the invention of the airplane, was it the first flight? "No", Orville said, "I got more thrill out of flying before I had ever been in the air at all-- while lying in bed thinking how exciting it would be to fly." For many of us who fly, we can understand this as we spend more time on the ground dreaming then in the air. -- Ross

5.0 su 5 stelle The Wright Brothers were entrepreneurs 14 aprile 2013
Di Spartan - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
Once you read the "How We Invented the Airplane" by Orville Wright, you realize just how closely they depended on the works of Otto Lilienthal to invent controlled flight. Otto was an engineer so the book has engineering equations. After Otto's untimely death, the Wright Brothers were able to take Otto's work and apply it towards inventing controlled flight. I clearly see the difference between "pure research" done by Otto and "applied research" done by the Wright brothers. It is always a struggle as to who should get the credit as applied research cannot succeed without basic research. When you read both books, you realize the credit for inventing flight should go to Otto & the Wright brothers. Suggest reading Orville's book first.

5.0 su 5 stelle The story is best in their own words. 29 gennaio 2015
Di William Dougherty - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
I liked Tom Crouch’s “The Bishop's Boys: A Life of Wilbur and Orville Wright” and when I saw this referenced I bought it. I must say it had real resonance while adding context. It’s short and concise and help’s you to understand what drove them (even after having read a 600 page biography). I recommend it to anyone who admires the Wright Bros. as I do. I’m not sure if you should read this before or after “The Bishop's Boys” but either way they’re both must reads for aviation aficionados.
This is a picture book and the illustrations are excellent but you’ve already seen most (but not all) of them, but I was most interested in the text, you’re left wanting more - if only Orville had written an autobiography.
