I found this to be a very interesting book about the SR-71. It contains stories told from many different people (mostly pilots) involved in the Blackbird program. It starts out a little slow, but gets more interesting later in the book. Besides reading about the great adventures encountered flying SR-71 'sorties', the book describes the demise of the SR-71 program, which was actually very interesting.
