Format: Paperback
I highly recommend you buy this book if you like a little bit of history and the future mixed together. This book tells about the XP-80 to the F-22 Raptor. It also tells a little bit about the future of stealth. From the very beginning of SKUNK WORKS and how it was founded to what SKUNK WORKS is doing today. Every chapter is dedicated to one of SKUNK WORKS planes. It has unlimited information on each plane in each chapter and has excellent pictures. Every thing that you would want to know on the SR-71 or the F-22 or any other plane that SKUNK WORKS has made is in this book. I highly recommend you buy this book.

The book had an excellent photographic review of Lockheed's history. The text was poor. There were several misspelled words and paragraphs that were hard to read. It could have used a better editor. Ben Rich's book is more entertaining and easier to read.

Format: Paperback
By probably the best aviation writer in America (in a tie with Walter Boyne perhaps), everything you need to know about one of the U.S.A national treasures. A fine example of what fine engineers can achieve when not hobbled by myopic accountants/lawyers/politicians and managers who place a higher priority on office resources triva than on completing the real tasks and actually making something.
A fascinating history, and a well told story
