    The story of the obstinately inventive Wright Brothers is nothing short of fascinating. The brothers’ interests started with printing, advanced to the development of bicycles, and culminated in a rush to the clouds with their fantastic flying machine. With no engineering degrees, or even their high school diplomas, Orville and Wilbur Wright were born entrepreneurs. Building and operating a printing press while still in their teens, the brothers tried their hand in the newspaper business. Althoug The story of the obstinately inventive Wright Brothers is nothing short of fascinating. The brothers’ interests started with printing, advanced to the development of bicycles, and culminated in a rush to the clouds with their fantastic flying machine. With no engineering degrees, or even their high school diplomas, Orville and Wilbur Wright were born entrepreneurs. Building and operating a printing press while still in their teens, the brothers tried their hand in the newspaper business. Although the endeavor booked moderate, if not a sporadic success, a new challenge caught their interest; bicycles. With the invention of the level-wheeled version (replacing the notoriously dangerous big/little wheel combination), the bicycle soon became very popular. They started out selling bikes manufactured by others but soon started experimenting, developing, and producing bicycles of their own. The challenge of flying is much more than sustaining the airtime, the biggest problem is controlling the aircraft once airborne. Thanks to initial experiments conducted in France, the Wright Brothers’ attention soon turned to the sky and the conundrum of control during sustained flight. The brothers worked diligently on this and other problems, but they weren’t reluctant to seek the help or ask advice of others. Wilbur began to correspond with an aeronautical expert, Octave Chanute and learned much about lift and drag. I have often wondered why two boys from Dayton, Ohio would travel all the way to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina to conduct their experiments. This book provided me with a plausible and logical answer. Little did the brothers know what their time, sweat, tears, and blood would mean to the world in a very short time? Like the automobile, the manned flight has to be rated in the top five of human accomplishments. I can’t help but wonder. My father was born a mere ten years after the U. S. military and the populace as a whole, viewed the Wright brothers’ achievements with skepticism. In the span of just two generations, man has not only mastered flight through the clouds but has rocketed into outer space and the planets beyond.

    This is an easy-to-read explanation of two brothers and their quest for flying.  They were creative and always looking for a project that would be worthwhile and make money.  Their early endeavors were with printing and then bicycles.  Because they not only sold but also repaired bicycles, they soon became proficient enough to create their own line of bicycles. While they were learning principles of mechanics, they started to experiment with flight.  It is important to note that famous people had This is an easy-to-read explanation of two brothers and their quest for flying.  They were creative and always looking for a project that would be worthwhile and make money.  Their early endeavors were with printing and then bicycles.  Because they not only sold but also repaired bicycles, they soon became proficient enough to create their own line of bicycles. While they were learning principles of mechanics, they started to experiment with flight.  It is important to note that famous people had been saying for years that human flight was not possible.  However, these two men were fascinated by the elements that were important to bring about flight.  As they conquered one, another problem arose.  Their bicycle business offered the two men the time and money to learn new things about flying machines. This is the fascinating story of how two brothers worked hard to prove something they thought was possible.  They were ignored for a long time and then others tried to infringe on their patents. The brothers spent years in court over lawsuits. The stress and typhoid fever eventually killed Wilbur, at the age of 45.  These two men invented, built, and flew the first successful airplane -- and changed the world.

    Two young brothers ages 7 and 11, Wilber and Orville Wright used their curiosity, intelligence and imagination from printing presses, bicycles and airplanes to better the world. From these experiences they learned success and rejections from scientists and newspapers. The brothers could see how their inventions would help the world and persevered throughout their life time. They saw the great benefits of their planes during World War II and around the world.

They saw the great benefits of their planes during World War II and around the world. I was amazed when Orville died of a heart attack in 1948. This is an outstanding history of the Wright Brothers and their flying experiences. I enjoyed the history from beginning in the end.

    Up up away In regards of the Wright brothers reading there is a insightful information of aviation history that this incredible invention was really in many ways great triumph for humanity but also brought challenges to the Wright brothers. The book gives a inspirational insight of their hard work and courage of the Wright brother its easy to understand their up and downs as aviation was getting off the ground. It’s historical read!!

    Excellent short read on the development of the airplane by the Wright Brothers. I am very familiar with the development of their aircraft so I was on the lookout for anything I could read that was not factual. I appreciate the detail that was given in how the brothers had to keep proving the worth of the airplane by convincing the U.S. Government of its importance, which did take time for our government to finally recognized. This is one of the best in the series of “hourly histories.”

    Amazing Gift to Mankind A good brief book. Amazing history created by these two brothers. A gift to humankind. This teaches me that never loose belief in oneself inspite what world says because they can't read your imagination. Amazing Gift to Mankind A good brief book.

    I learned a lot from this short one hour summary about the Wright Brothers, specifically I learned about their many experiments, their data collection, details about their attempts and failures. I feel that this book is one of the better One Hour Histories I have read. Well worth the read.

    A nice summary of their lives and their contribution to the conquest of the air. It quite nicely places their invention in the context of the time. I hadn't realised how their first flight was totally ignored as something of no interest! A nice summary of their lives and their contribution to the conquest of the air.

    Now here is an educational read! I knew the Wright Brothers flew--end of story. Come to find out that, yes, they did fly, but it was not a "one time effort", nor were they alone in making flight something more than an act. For a quick read, this is very enlightening and I thank you for it. Now here is an educational read! I knew the Wright Brothers flew--end of story.

    From bikes to planes I like reading about the struggle to d and the struggle to get attention from governments and backing. It is cool to see high school graduates changing the world without college.

    This is a short overview of the history of the Wright Brothers. If you're looking for something to read in an hour or so this works. However, I consider David McCullough's book on the Wright Brothers excellent. This is a short overview of the history of the Wright Brothers.

    Kitty Hawk, Kill Devil Hills This is such an interesting story. I was also interested in it because I have been to the Wright Brothers museum in Kitty Hawk. I love the Outer Banks.
