Boeing. The name alone evokes images of gigantic jetliners, sprawling aircraft production facilities, and American industrial might. Although today this aircraft dynasty is best known as the world's largest supplier of jetliners, it began as a tiny builder of naval trainers, fighter planes, and mailplanes. The company quickly grew, and with the coming of World War II, Boeing built thousands of bombers to fight the Axis powers. Boeing would return to civilian airplanes in the early 1950s, producing the 707, the first in a long line of jetliners.

Review: BoeingUser Review - Goodreads
I think that this was a very informational book, and that it was strange that such a successful person who started such a successful company started as a failure that had to pay his employees out of his personal bank account. This book is a bit crammed with information, and I didn't like that.
