    Shockingly entertaining history of commercial air travel

    There were so many moments in this book when I had to look up and tell someone what I just learned about how air travel used to be, only 40 years ago! The frequency of hijackings is astonishing, as is the routines and countermeasures that were developed around the epidemic. Pilots used to just know how to get to Havana, and the Cuban government and US State Dept had a pretty well-established routine for returning aircraft to US soil. This is one of those non-fiction books that reads as fluidly as a long magazine article.

    A truth-is-stranger-than-fiction story about a time period when hijacking airplanes was an almost normal occurrence. I didn't know anything about this, and the author did a great job of keeping me entertained while learning something new.
