I really enjoyed author Daniel Alef's story of Northrop. It makes great fodder for conspiracy theorists and leaves one wondering what really happened behind the scenes. I've read a number of Alef's biographical profiles. They are concise, well written, with a great take on the subject presented in a pleasing and readable style. When I saw the review by "Daedelus" from South Africa, I was intrigued. It seemed at such variance with my experience with Alef's Titans of Fortune series. So I bought it, especially after seeing that it was one of the best selling titles in several categories. In retrospect I was surprised by Daedelus's comments. First, it seems as if he thought it should be free. That's not fair to the author. It is copyrighted and constitutes his work. Next, Daedelus thought it was a book. The product description for this profile says it is a "1,689-word Titans of Fortune article." Finally, "Daedelus" says it is too expensive at $3.49. Well, the price is $1.49. Finally, he says it's a "superficial overview." That's not right. Perhaps Daedelus got too close to the sun; not only did his wings melt, but it seems to have hampered his vision, too. I whole-heartedly recommend this title.
