Capt. Jepp and the Little Black Book is a fascinating look at the beginnings of aviation in America and the colorful daredevils who risked their lives to entertain crowds, deliver the mail, and carry passengers commercially. It is also the rags-to-riches story of Elrey B. Jeppesen–daredevil barnstormer and wing walker of the 1920s, intrepid airmail and airline pilot of the 1930s, creator of an aerial navigation system in use today worldwide, and founder of a business that grew from a ten-cent little black book into an international, multi-billion-dollar enterprise without equal.
