Santos-Dumont the aviation obsessed is a psychological study of the character. The author tells us about the life of the young Albert in Brazil, his conquest of Paris, his adventures in Monaco, his fast and sensational records, his controversy with the Wright, his decline and his tragic death. Written with loving admiration, the book respects the impartiality of history. Illuminating with a decisive light the fascinating beginnings of aviation, it revives the original and sympathetic figure of the great precursor.
