    A friend gave me this book to help with my fear of flying.  It was easy to read and easy to understand.  The author does a nice job of explaining things without getting too technical.  I personally would have liked a little more info about all the noises, bumps, and jostles that one feels flying, but the way he explained what he did will certainly help me be less anxious my next time in the air.

    Great book to learn about air travel

    I bought this book to deal with my fear of flying. It's a fact book of how planes fly and other things that have to do with air travel. Note that this book is very honest and it does include a list of the top 10 worst air disasters. I learned a lot from this book and hopefully this knowledge will help me be calmer next time I fly.

    Great Book!

    This book is truly a book that you can use. The way the author, Patrick Smith, calms you down about flying is a very big plus. I am planning to become a pilot for a major airline, so I would like to know what will calm people down on an airplane. I reccomend this book to people that fly alot, and to people that love airplanes. Even if you think you know everything about airplanes, airports, and pilots, this book will show you that you are mistaken. Outstanding!

    This Should Get Six Stars

    This book was outstanding. The author explains the ups and downs of air travel and being a pilot. After reading a couple pages even my history teacher wanted to read it!

    LOVED it!

    Flying is a love-hate relationship for me. While I am fascinated with airplanes and the entire process of boarding a jet for a destination, I hate and sometimes fear flying. I have so many questions related to flying, and this book answered a lot of my questions. It is a unique book written by a pilot, and a professional who understand his trade. It is interesting to learn all the 'science' behind flying a commercial jet, and the why's and how's of operating this huge machine that also happens to carry hundreds of people in it. He writes with passion and humor. It is a good read- buy it and read it on a plane ride!!!

    I loved this book!

    This was one of the best books I have read in a long time. If you are fascinated by airplanes/piloting/airports, this book is a must read. It was very educational, with a touch of humor. I was so sad when I reached the last few pages because I didn't want it to end! I hope he writes a continuation of this book sometime in the near future.

    Outstanding

    The trouble with this book is it's too short, and you end up with a whole new set of questions not covered in the text. I mean that in a GOOD way, as the author's style and intelligence really inspire you to THINK about flight and travel. I was startled by how smart and well written this book is. The author's critique of airline liveries and logos for example is hiliarious and brilliant. If you travel even semi-regularly, and whether you love or hate to fly, this is a must buy.
