I'd heard of Hughes growing up, and I saw "The Aviator" and of course being in Oregon knew of the Spruce Goose. But I had no idea of just how fascinating and tragic his life really was. Simultaneously an amazing genius and despicable creep, his descent into paranoid madness is a fascinating tale. No doubt he'd have been a real jerk even without the mental problems, but seeing the big picture of his incredible life is well worth the read.
