This book from Karl Sabbagh documents the entire design process from the initial drawings to the final roll-out of the aircraft.
For the most part the book is well-written and informative, although with such a wide-ranging subject to cover, there are times the book appears to "skimp" on detail. In addition, Sabbagh has a tendency to display his ignorance of the technicalities of the subject and fails to explain complex concepts clearly.
One theme that runs particularly well through the book is that of the management environment of the project, and the useful influence that the senior management team at Boeing had on the successful delivery of the project. The reader comes away feeling that (s)he has come to know the characters almost personally and this human side of the story is particularly welcome in a subject that might otherwise have appeared stale.
