Walter Percy Chrysler
Chrysler: The Life and Times of an Automotive Genius Chrysler: The Life and Times of an Automotive Genius by Vincent Curcio
From hardscrabble beginnings as a railroad machinist, Walter P. Chrysler rose with hard work through the ranks to head a locomotive factory. When Chrysler was introduced to his first automobile, it was love at first sight, and he soon found his way to Detroit and the fledgling automobile industry. He personally supervised the design of the first Chrysler automobile in 1924, and its quick success led, in part, to the founding of the Chrysler Corporation the following year.
Amelia Mary Earhart
The Sound of Wings: The Life of Amelia Earhart The Sound of Wings: The Life of Amelia Earhart by Mary S. Lovell
This definitive biography of aviation legend Amelia Earhart delivers a brilliantly researched report on Earhart's life--from her tomboy childhood and early fascination with flying, her business/matrimonial relationship with publisher G.P. Putnam to her consuming quest for aviation fame.
Amelia Earhart: A Biography Amelia Earhart: A Biography by Doris L. Rich
She died mysteriously before she was forty. Yet in the last decade of her life Amelia Earhart soared from obscurity to fame as the best-known female aviator in the world. She set record after record - among them, the first trans-Atlantic solo flight by a woman, a flight that launched Earhart on a double career as a fighter for women's rights and a tireless crusader (perhaps the most effective activist of her time) for commercial air travel. Doris L. Rich's exhaustively researched biography downplays the "What Happened to Amelia Earhart?" myth by disclosing who Amelia Earhart really was.
Karl Meninger
Man Against Himself Man Against Himself by Karl Meninger
In this landmark book the impulse toward self-destructiveness is examined as a misdirection of the instinct for survival, a turning inward of the aggressive behavior developed for self-preservation. The self-imposed illness, despair, even suicide, that result from this conflict are compassionately yet objectively analyzed and documented through case histories. Drawing on the work of such pioneers as Ferenczi, Groddeck, Jelliffe, White, Alexander, and Simmel, Menninger shows that intelligent self-knowledge can bring self-respect and understanding into man's psychological war against himself--on the side of self-preservation.
