What Garry Kasparov says

With some of American tech’s most myopic companies raking in record profits, it’s remarkable that Elon Musk has moved so boldly into electric cars, rockets and clean energy—and doubly remarkable how well he is succeeding in dragging a risk-averse culture with him.

The Wright Brothers

by
About
The Book
David McCullough, two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, tells the surprising, profoundly human story of Wilbur and Orville Wright. Far more than a couple of unschooled Dayton bicycle mechanics who happened to hit on success, they were men of exceptional courage and determination and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing. In this thrilling book, McCullough draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers' story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them.
