Absolutely brilliant book that i really enjoyed. This is the third book that i have read about HH, and the more i read the more i want to know. He had more money than he knew what to do with it, dabbled in politics, spying and CIA programmes and slept with some of the most famous actresses of all time. Yet behind the scenes he would obsessed with germs and other things, issues that would take over his life and lead to him disappearing from public life, living in an information bubble where his closest aids manipulated his money and his mind to thier own ends. If you're interested in HH, then this is a brilliant book. A great follow on from the excellent book on HH by James Phelan. I thoroughly enjoyed reading these, but they always left me thinking that with such as complex man like HH, obsessed with privacy, we will only ever know a tiny amount about his actual life, especially when he went underground.

some parts of this book are really inspiring, which is exactly what I was hoping for, but a lot of it revolves around Howard Hughes' personal life as opposed to his professional, in particular focusing on his multitude of romantic conquests/mishaps.i found myself having to power through descriptions of relationship after relationship, to really enjoy the areas of the book which dealt with his successes in the aviation and film industries.still well worth a read, as parts are great.

This is a fascinating book about a brilliant man. Anyone interested in business / aviation / early cinema should read this. It was a great insight into a man often perceived as mad but who was actually a genius.

I bought this book for my Dad, he is an avid reader but choosy He has read other books on Howard Hughes and thought this was going to be a rehash but he cannot put it down, he absolutely loves it.
