Reader's note

A true tale of daring adventure and invention! This brilliant old book is a must-read for anyone who has ever felt inspired to make something! This is the story of Anthony Fokker and the pioneering advancements he helped to make in the American aviation industry. Of course, every inventor needs to start somewhere and he details what happened when he tried to invent a tyre that cannot be punctured - Our fathers mutually agreed to finance the development, and Mr. Cremet said we could use his car for the preliminary tests. Before they finished they had put up several thousand guilders, and Fritz and I had spent a year of our time. Half a mile from the starting point, the first nonpuncturable tyre for automobiles fell apart in the middle of the road. - oh dear! Read about the success of his further inventions in this marvellous pink Penguin.
