Book: "Citizen Hughes: The Power, the Money and the Madness," by Michael Drosnin
What it's about: The book is about Howard Hughes in his later life. The writer got a hold of the handwritten notes he used to direct his business when he was a recluse. The book tries to explain his thinking. He tried to buy many politicians even though he never voted. He complained about taxes even though he didn't pay any for 17 years. The book is tedious at times, but also interesting. I picked it up after watching "The Aviator."
