David McCullough is just a great writer He can turn any mundane topic into something fascinating And he did it again with The Wright Brothers I don t really have an interest in aviation and I m not sure why I even picked up the book except that I figured if McCullough wrote it it must be good And it is McCullough tells the story of two all American boys who through an incredible amount of work effort and ambition invented the first real airplane And they did this with just an amateur knowledge of science and technology The story is truly inspiringTwo things surprised me though One was the anti semitism that their sister expressed when hearing of Hart Berg the reprentative of Flint and Company who would eventually reprensent them and two was their fates in the end Somehow both these elements seemed out of character The Wright Brothers themselves were peculiar however It seems neither ever had as much as a girlfriend at least from the story McCullough tells and one has to wonder why that was They lived at home their entire lives along with their sister who likewise seems to have avoided the opposite sex for most of her life McCullough doesn t dwell on this but it does seem a bit strange But I suppose genius is often found in madnessBut it s a truly fascinating incredibly American tale and well worth a read
