    Inspiring, and not just for Amelia Earhart fans

    I was initially interested in this book because Amelia Earhart was my childhood hero. While I am not an aviator, I was inspired by her ability to transcend role expectations for women, and to build a fulfilling life for herself by following her dreams. This book does not disappoint in highlighting those aspects of her life. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the research into her family history. I came to believe that the story of the factors in her background that contributed to making her who she was would have been fascinating even if she didn't ultimately become a famous person. It made me hunger for more personalized genealogical histories such as this, no matter who the subject!

    Very well written

    This book was very well written and well researched. The details the author puts in are amazing. My only complaint would be that the book did not address the many rumors surrounding her disappearance but it is a minor complaint at that.

    Long book

    I find this book slow reading as it is so heavily weighted with biographic information.
    Great read for aviation enthusiasts. I was reading it to learn about the woman herself.
