At the turn of the twentieth century two inventions - the car and the airplane - took America's imagination by storm. Along with them came new heroes: the race car driver and the flying ace. No one did more to create and intensify these raw new roles than Eddie Rickenbacker, who defied death with such courage and pluck that a generation of Americans knew his face better than the president's. Enduring Courage tells the unforgettable story of a man who pushed the limits of speedy endurance and courage and emerged as an American legend. Book jacket.

Not a bio but a sketch of Eddie. Mr. Ross has a good writing style but content of the book is "thin."

The book is padded with writing that has little or nothing to do with Rickenbacker.

If one is looking for a biography look elsewhere.

You can't imagine how lucky a person can be until you read this book. I found it hard to put down - Ross weaves the incredible life of Rickenbacker into the larger story of that golden age of technology. Compulsively fascinating.
