The book is FANTASTIC.
I recommend it to everyone.
It is the only full compendium of autogyro, autogiro, gyrocopter, gyroplane, rotordyne history in print.
Not to trivialize the content but to entice....
How a favorite table in the local tavern saved Spanish Aviation and started the rotorcraft industry...
That autogiros did indeed see military action and how they faired against top of the line German fighters
How Ken Brock is arguably just as crucial to the rebirth of the autogyro as Dr. Bensen.
How time after time the autogyro has been robbed of greater success in the avation markets due to strange unexpected tragedies ( non gyro ), yet has still managed to survive.
And much much more....

Tim OConnor, are you a sales man? I bet you are. :D

No I am not in sales.
I am an instructor in computer network engineering and security.
I would take a job as 'gyroplane evanglist' if I could find a way to make a living at it though! ;D
