5.0 out of 5 stars although noise from the radio can be too great. There I always a compromise, 24 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works really well. I bought this as my first hearing aid and will use it as a first reserve when I can find something smaller. When not in use I turn it off and take out the battery - they last two to three days for m usage. I can now hear what my wife says in the car, although noise from the radio can be too great. There I always a compromise. I have to turn it down as low as I can.
A very good buy for such a low price.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These appear to be the same as the originals I had with the pump and work effectively the same.
Two things upset me. Why do I have to buy two? And why are they different sizes.
Secondly cost. Why sixty two pounds for the pair? In the States one would be twenty four dollars. That would be a sensible option, just to buy one at the GBP price of twenty four dollars.

The Papers of Wilbur and Orville Wright: Including the Chanute-Wright Letters and Other Papers of Octave Chanute
The Papers of Wilbur and Orville Wright: Including the Chanute-Wright Letters and Other Papers of Octave Chanute
by Wilbur Wright
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFULL, 11 Dec. 2015
A seemingly huge cost but a must for those intent on discovering why it was that these two men were the first to succeed in powered manned flight.

It must be quickly said that in return you receive two very large volumes, both held within a smart boxed container. Volume one covers the period 1899-1905 and volume two covers the period 1906-1948.

In addition, you receive the Chanute to Wright papers. So what you have are mainly the letters of Wilbur, but also of Orville, written to Octave Chanute with Chanute's replies, all in chronological order, together with letters from and to their father, Bishop Milton, and even their sister Katharine.

It will help the reader to understand why, after achieving man-powered flight in December 1903, that it took so long for aviation to get going. Did the Wright's hold things back, was it just for personnel gain. I'll let you decide. Also, why were they snubbed by their own Government for so long? It is such interesting reading.

However, interesting as this all is, the reader would be better prepared if they had already gleaned knowledge of the Wrights by reading something like 'An ancient air - Wilbur & Orville a biography of the Wright brothers' by Fred Howard or 'The Bishop's Boys' or 'The Wright Brothers' by Fred C Kelly the official Wright biographer. For instance, the papers in this volume do not explain how the brothers came to have so much time to spend on this project. Another missing point is that Wilbur, the older brother, does not allow Orville to fly until they have succeeded in mastering some element of control over their gliders. This is because these two volumes are the Wright's papers, not a biography or autobiography. Nor will the reader be aware that Katharine had a part to play in stitching the cloth for the wings. But these points would only help to appreciate more the wealth of information that is contained within these pages.

Wilbur and Orville did not keep all of their papers, it was Chanute, a man involved in global aviation activity, who by keeping records of his letters allows us the unique experience of witnessing the build up to man's first successful man-powered flight.

I must mention that there is almost as much reading within the authors editing notes, which are kept as footnotes on a page by page basis, which can make for heavy, but necessary, reading. Also there are over 230 photo plates together with drawings and appendices such as 'Wright Model Aerofoils', 'Theory', 'The Propellers' and Octave Chanute's Diaries.

On many occasions I have been reluctant to turn out the light in order to read just one more day in this book. If you have someone in your life who is passionate about early flight and how it was achieved then this is the ultimate present which will be greatly appreciated.

Not much to say as I have only skimmed through as a first look. It seems as if it will help and will further review after trying out the suggestions.

Used for my iPad Air so that both my wife and I can share videos etc on the iPad when travelling. I tested it out, along with an extension cable, and it has worked well. Sometimes the plug on my non iPad headphone needs a slight adjustment (pushing it in or out), but it all works well.
