Well written and provides some great history on the company. My only gripe was that it seemed like there was so much more detail about the companys first 3-5 years, and then everything after that was quite slim. That meant not that much attention was given to the Aeronca 7-Series or 11-Series. I also own Luscombes Golden Age, and although this Aeronca book is much better written than that book, this one provides a lot less information.
