What a very interesting character! If you have any interest in the man, Howard Hughes, you should read this book (or some biography of Hughes). Completely fascinating. I wasn't completely thrilled with Higham's writing style, but I tend to get caught up in tiny details that annoy me. But that's just me. Otherwise, this is a really great story. Check it out! I'm always up for a good biography. Recommended to me by Alison Leigh.
