      An awesome book. Informative, great pictures and just brilliant for anyone interested in aviation -- sits lovely next to "Human" and "Animal"

      I own this book and it is full of airplanes from the past and present. I have read mostly all of it and i still go back to read. This book is one of my absolute favorites.

      This is an amazing great big book. There are hundreds of big glossy books of planes and aviation history in bookstores, and with the 100 years of powered controlled flight anniversary, there will no doubt be a few more bowing the shelves. But if you want to buy just one, say for a present, then this is the one to buy. It is balanced, it is complete, it has pictures and text in harmony -- and it is not slapped together like some other slightly embarrassing flying tomes.Over 400 pages perfect for [...]

      This is a very good reference for the history of flight. There is a lot of interesting information throughout the book, which makes it very fun to read. The organization, with sidebars and many illustrating photographs, helps to give variety in an interesting way.

      An excellent book following and succinctly explaining the most important and history-making aircraft and events in the development of aviation over the past 100 years. The book flows both through time period and category of aircraft, making the information easy to comprehend even for those who don't have a background in aviation. A great reference book.

      don't read this as a e-book adobe edition on a netbook. It has three columns and my set-up only allows me to see about half a column at a size that is readable. Which means I was scrolling up and down each page about five times to read it. Good book with lots of information. Takes the air out of "USA stuff is always best" balloon.

      This is a good book if you are looking to write a research paper or do a project over the airplane. this book mainly covers the wide variety of different airplanes and how they have been getting better and more advance over the years.

      A huge book with great info and images. The layout and design of the book really suited the amount of information. Lots of little details not in normal general aviation book, but like any book there where areas I would of liked a bit more info on specific aircraft or decades.
