Worthwhile account, too much padding,

This review is from: QF32 (Kindle Edition)
A gripping account of a near-catastrophe, written in a technical style calculated to appeal to aviation groupies. The situation is reminiscent of Apollo 13, although the book falls far short of Kluger's Lost Moon as either journalism or literature. It's twice as long as it needs to be, on account of the pointless and not-really-that-interesting biographical back-story, and narrated with an arrogant air that portrays the author as no Jim Lovell. An interesting incident, but a brief one and deserving of a shorter and more focused book. Would be a good read at half the price and without the pedestrian preamble and irrelevant appendices.
