If you think you know all about the Wright brothers, you haven't read this book. The author includes many details not revealed in previous biographies. She focuses on how they worked together to solve the mystery of manned flight, and how each brother's contribution was as important as the other's. The brothers tried and failed many times to put a man on an aircraft and make them fly. They experimented in ways I didn't know were possible for that time period. The most important lesson? They never gave up. They worked until they achieved a dream.
