    1. Now, almost 100 years after his death, it is very interesting to read how the flying was done, his description of how long time it took to gain altitude. He was living for flying and when reading these notes from him it got very clear that he was interested in life and the world around him, though he preferred to view it from above, in the pilot seat. And he loved battles.He did not like to be famous, and even considered to have pre-written answers to hand out to all people asking him questions. [...]


    2. Very well written in first-perspective with educating notions. In my opinion better than the english equivalent(ish) written by James McConnel.
