After watching The Aviator I wanted to know more about Hughes and this seemed to be the most reputable volume. Very well written and researched, this bio tells you all you need to know about the man and the truth and the details are much more outlandish than even Hollywood can portray. All areas of Hughes’s life are examined in detail but the focus here leans more toward his mental/emotional problems and his pathological womanizing. Hughes remains one of the most fascinating and brilliant figures of the 20th Century but by the end of the book I grew weary of the minutiae of his madness and ended up glossing over many sections which became increasingly depressing variations on a theme: A fearless innovator and adventurer whose wild excesses were unrestrained by financial limits but who was imprisoned, crippled, and ultimately destroyed by physical and mental illness. Readers looking for sensational voyeurism will likely be more satisfied than history buffs.

KINDLE READERS: This edition has an awkward font that can't be changed and creates occasional display errors. No "time left" shown for chapters and individual chapters can only be accessed through hotlinks in the Table of Contents instead of the Go To menu. Pretty lame, considering the above average price.

If you’re looking for Howard the Business Man, keep looking. You won’t find an exhaustive analysis of Hughes’ financial ventures here, nor does this work detail Howard the Aviator (Charles Barton’s Howard and his Flying Boat is currently the single best work available on Howard’s aviation achievements). Sure the book does cover these areas, as it follows the full sweep of the man’s near-mythical life—from his restrictive rearing by a hypochondriacal mother, to his stunningly inglorious demise in 1976—but the main focus of Brown and Broeske’s The Untold Story is Howard the Lady-Killer, the handsome, wealthy rock star with a visionary mind and balls of brass. Through the maze of Howard’s love life, a fascinating, intimate portrait emerges of a man who could be supremely charming and charitable, manipulative and callous. Yet, the book never loses sight of the central villain: Howard’s obsessive-compulsive disorder, the symptoms of which were made worse by numerous head injuries. In the light of this condition, much of Hughes’ seemingly strange behavior is understood. Brown and Broeske do go some length to maintain an air of respect for the man, making impressive use of secondary sources to dutifully dispel some of the erroneous rumors hovering around Howard Hughes, elevating The Untold Story above the dreadful tabloid biographies that plague the market. It’s likely there will always be an air of mystery around Howard Hughes, but The Untold Story does an admirable job in presenting a coherent insight into an extraordinary figure.

I was a little disappointed in the proportion of this book that was dedicated to his love affairs. No doubt, reading how he related to women gives some insight into his character and his declining mental state. However, I'd say 60%-70% of this book reads like a who's who of Howard Hughes' girl friends and lovers and read like a tabloid magazine of affairs and break ups. Howard Hughes was a very interesting man who achieved much more than bedding a laundry list of women. I wish Mr. Brown had given more focus to those other aspects of Howard Hughes' life.

I always found Howard Hughes to be a fascinating personality and innovator so I wanted to learn more about him especially after seeing "The Aviator". Peter Brown through documentation, interviews and research really gives a true account of the genius of Howard Hughes. Mr. Brown also gives great insight into the possible reasons for Mr. Hughes's eccentricities and mental illness. Mr. Brown's "The Untold Story" avoids the tabloid sensationalism of the Mr. Hughes's exploits but instead provides a fair and objective portrait of one of America's greatest aviation visionaries.
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to read a really great biography of an American icon.

THIS GUY IS ONE OF THE MOST INTERESTING PEOPLE THAT EVER LIVED. TONS OF GOOD STORIES. I REALLY LOVED THE STORIES ABOUT HOLLYWOOD AND HIS BUISNESS DEALINGS. IF YOU LIKE THE HISTORICAL SIDE OF HOLLYWOOD AND STORIES OF ALL THOSE ACTING LEGENDS FROM THE 30'S THRU THE 70'S, YOUR GONNA LOVE THIS BOOK

If you are tired of reading books that educate you, then this one is where you might enjoy wasting your time. If you've ever read the gossip rags, Enquirer and such then you'll know what I mean. The authors document just about every woman Hughes bedded but who cares? The best part of the book was his flying events and tragedies.

A truly brilliant and extraordinary man and the author does an amazing job portraying the life he lived. One cant help but be amazed, surprised, and sad all at the same time for the story that was his life. If only he had had friends strong enough to get him the help he needed maybe things would have been different.
Okay, I have to admit I have been fascinated by this man since childhood. Most anything I read about him fascinates me. This book is well written and gives plenty of insights into the life of this enigmatic man. A genius, a manipulator, an entrepreneur, the personification of evil, a creator, a maverick and a man larger than life in many ways. I believe you will enjoy reading this book if you like biographies.There was only one Howard Hughes, thankfully I believe.
