Description

This is not the actual David McCullough's "The Wright Brothers." The primary objective of this book is to bring insightful discussion and critique of McCullough's"The Wright Brothers"to readers everywhere. Wilbur and Orville Wright invented and built the world's first successful heavier-than-air flying machine and made the first controlled flight. The Wright brothers' story offers lessons not only for aspiring inventors and entrepreneurs, but for the rest of us as well. One of the lessons from their lives is that hard work and dedication to a greater purpose help people remain humble, thus allowing them to avoid developing a superiority complex and the sense of entitlement that so many people have nowadays. Even after the Wrights became very famous, they did not try to associate themselves with the rich and famous. Their work remained the greatest reward for them. The goals of this book are as follows: * To provide you with a concise, well-organized and clear summary of the key ideas and facts of McCullough's "The Wright Brothers"; * To provide you with a summary of credible ideas, facts and findings that supplement or contrast with those in McCullough's book. These ideas, facts and findings will help you better understand and critically think about the topics discussed in McCullough's book; * To offer you additional insights into the stronger and weaker sides of "The Wright Brothers" via its critique; * And to provide you with a list of carefully researched resources, including other books and free online resources that supplement McCullough's book and its critique.show more
