If you are a Cessna pilot and want to learn about the genesis of your ship or a student of aviation history, you need to read this book (and the author's two subsequent volumes which cover later Cessna aircraft).

The author's daughter has an excellent overview of the book at: Thompson Aero Products. I really enjoyed this book. I've flown on a Cessna aircraft and had no idea how much effort went into developing them. This book goes through each model type with development photos and candid recollections of the designers and test pilots. It's very insightful reading for any aviation enthusiast.

As someone who's owned three different models of Cessna singles, and logged time in at least four more, I found this book very illuminating with respect to the development process of many of these classic and workhorse airplanes. I hadn't known of the author prior to reading this book, but it's hard to imagine someone better-equipped to cover the subject. The writing is a nice blend of anecdote, historical and technical fact, and insights about how a plane proceeds from concept to production model. I found the pace and level of description just right to keep it interesting and informative. It is broken down by model in rough chronological order. You can take it in cover-to-cover, or easily focus on any models that may be of particular interest.
