'Ward McNally's new account of Smithy's life and times contains a substantial amount of unpublished material. He has been helped by Mrs Mary Tully (formerly Lady Kingsford-Smith) and others to fill in some of the gaps in the story.
Some of Kingsford-Smith's exploits remain as controversial today as they were when he was alive. But Ward McNally's book comes close to revealing all the glory and sadness and drama that crammed the life of this small, lean, smiling man.
Thirty-four photographs, including some of unique interest, add their effectiveness to the text.'
