This was an easy book to read. It was hard to put down. Very interesting information, and it made me want to know more about this amazing man who was such a pioneer in aviation.

Doolittle's aviation skills, his thirst for adventure, his boundless determination, and his unabashed love and promotion of military and civilian aviation make for an informative, uplifting, and very highly recommended biographical profile.
