    a really good read

    I very much enjoyed reading this - a great adventure tale that was difficult to out down. The story focuses on the cockpit activities which was very interesting and nerve-wracking. I would have liked to have heard more about what was going on inside the passenger area, which was almost entirely missing from the book. There were a couple of other downsides - rather repetitive throughout with listing the technical problems and a bit too much Qantas chest thumping. But overall a really great read. Those pilots are very clever & amazingly brave blokes, and real heroes. I imagine that there was a lot of bravery and professionalism shown by the cabin crew also, but not much is mentioned about them in this book which is a shame.

    Couldn't put it down.

    As a recently qualified private pilot considering a career change to aviation I found this book a fascinating read. Highly recommended for any pilot of any level, or anyone with an interest in aviation human factors.

    Great read

    Wow! Such a careful and balanced account of a major air disaster - from someone who lived tobtell the tale. Great insights into the engineering, training, backup and so many other aspects that keep these things in the air. Important lessons for teamwork and working under pressure. 'Unputdownable' from about the half way mark!
