4.0 von 5 Sternen Addictive reading indeed
Even if the authors did get a fact or two wrong (the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter was NOT America's first supersonic jet, as the book erroneously states about 3 times. The F-86 and F-100 were both supersonic and preceded the F-104), and even though Leo Janos' touch was perhaps a bit too evident here and there (darned near everybody in the book talks in the vernacular of...

Good read, but it's just morsels rather than a good fill. Ultimately I wanted better insight.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years of Lockheed (Taschenbuch)
Even if the authors did get a fact or two wrong (the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter was NOT America's first supersonic jet, as the book erroneously states about 3 times. The F-86 and F-100 were both supersonic and preceded the F-104), and even though Leo Janos' touch was perhaps a bit too evident here and there (darned near everybody in the book talks in the vernacular of Chuck Yeager -- or was that Janos all along? -- with perhaps a few too many "goddams" thrown in for effect) the book is a great read.
It abruptly yanks the alluring veil of secrecy off of the Skunk Works and shows you the basic, raw underbelly of what it took to design, build, fly and sell the most advanced aircraft the world has yet seen.
Unfortunately, as a definitive document on the Skunk Works' achievements and historical implications of their aircraft, the book is but a tease. The story of the amazing SR-71 alone is worthy of a book-length treatment. But as a preface, "Skunk Works" is a great lead-in to other relevant books such as:
"Operation Overflight", by Francis Gary Powers with Curt Gentry; "Mayday: Eisenhower, Khrushchev, and the U-2 Affair", by Michael R. Beschloss; "Sled Driver: Flying the World's Fastest Jet", by Brian Shul (SR-71 pilot)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Skunk Works, 7. Juli 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works (Taschenbuch)
Airplane History & Management Tactics at its best.

The paperback book edition is a little bit small, so maybe the heavier versions offer better optics and grip. But this doesn't change the reading experience at all.

Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a fascinating story, 30. Mai 2005
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works (Taschenbuch)
Ben R. Rich does such a good job of describing the events and people that were involved in the U-2, the stealth fighter, and the Blackbird, that you feel you are on the team. You get to find the problems and help solve them with unique (sometimes-simpler) solutions. And it is over way too soon.
This makes you wonder what they are up to today?

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Insiders Look at the Spy Business, 10. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years of Lockheed (Taschenbuch)
Skunk Works is an inside look at the Lockheed plant that built the U-2, SR-71, F117A Stealth fighter and other top-secret aircraft. Rich, as the former head of the Skunk Works, takes the reader through the entire process, from initial brainstorm to operational aircraft. Along the way he shows us the victories, pitfalls and bureaucratic redtape that pollutes the industry today. Skunk Works is an absorbing look at the covert side of military aviation long kept secret from the public. As a Vietnam vet who served with military intelligence, I always cringe when I read disclosures of top secret information. As a history and aviation buff, I find those same disclosures fascinating. Skunk Works is a fun read that takes full advantage of the end of the Cold War. It won't disappoint

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of my favorites, 18. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years of Lockheed (Taschenbuch)
This book is page turningly wonderful. It chronicles all the insider stuff from Lockheed's advanced research dept. I loved all the head butts Lockheed had with the CIA as well as the stories of the techical obstacles and the methods to overcome them. This book is one of my all time favorite books and best of all, it's non-fiction!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Skunk Works-Proven Work Ethics, 5. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years of Lockheed (Taschenbuch)
From a small staff of 75+- Engineers we now enjoy the fruits of their collective labor. Wicked good read that should be on the list (NOT required but historically important) of ALL Junior & Senior High Schools in our very safe country. The portrayed CAN DO attitude in the book is very much alive in the workplace.....JOIN IN !

I couldn't put this book down. It is well written and so interesting that all other work got put on hold while I finished it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A compelling read for anyone vaguely interested in aviaition, 22. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years of Lockheed (Taschenbuch)
You've seen the Skunk Works' aircraft on the Discovery Channel. Now you have the whole story - or at least as much as one of the foremost authorities on the subject is willing and able to tell you. "Skunk Works" is a great read, written by a man with intimate knowledge of one of the most fascinating periods in American aviation and its role in the diplomatic intrigue of the Cold War era. Just as compelling as the subject matter is Ben R. Rich and Leo Janos' ability to communicate unimaginable engineering problems in a manner that makes you feel like you really understand what they are talking about. Not likely for most of us, but it's great fun along the way.
