The book is about one aircraft. But author Richard Whittle provides insight into how government (bureaucrats and officers, processes, budgeting) and private companies and their executives affect one product, a military aircarft. The books gets into the Pentagon, Bell and Boeing, but is driven by key civilian and military players in the development of new aviation technology. Importantly, Whittle shows how key decisions trickle down, and can mean life and death to the lives of our servicemen and women.

Would you listen to The Dream Machine again? Why?
No, I wouldn’t listen again. The book lacks a depth to its writing, it’s very biographical and informational. The stories that are included are good and entertaining, but they’re not absolutely captivating.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dream Machine?
The best part about this book is that it details the post-capture phase of the V-22 program, and let’s the reader in on how the V-22 came to be.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, it wasn’t a fun read, but that’s mainly because I had to read it for work.
