Synopsis: Flying High is the first investigative history of one of the world's most influential corporations, the Boeing Company. In an objective and riveting account, Eugene Rodgers tells how this giant of a company developed the jetliners that reinvented travel, shrank the world, and made America the international ruler of the aircraft industry.
Review: As the longtime leader in a predominantly American industry, the Boeing Corporation has experienced a tumultuous succession of ups and downs. In Flying High: The Story of Boeing and the Rise of the Jetliner Industry, author and former university instructor Eugene Rodgers parlays the unusual access he was given to the aircraft firm's internal archives and primary figures into a perceptive, comprehensive behind-the-scenes account of one of this century's most noteworthy companies.
