Entertaining sequences can be read as snippets. Aviation geeks of all ages will enjoy reading cover to cover.

Good, but not great book with no further reading or bibliography.
Bit dry, but author have huge bias on sea planes & anti-bland.
Subjects ranged from shady airline (air America), airport three letter codename (ouch on Sioux City, Iowa's SUX), aire force insingia, callsigns, forgotten heroes to cancelled projects.
Still decent introduction to flight for all ages.
