In a way, I'm quite glad that I am disabled (I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007 and this has progressed over the last 10 years, to the state where my 2nd marriage has collapsed so I am divorced again and I was forced to quit working in 2011, so have got plenty of time to read books like this one) as being in that state means I can probably still afford the cost of flying to a lot of places, thanks to the influx of low cost airlines like Ryanair, who have flown my ex-wife and myself to many European destinations, but I cannot afford the travel insurance.
I love flying. Even after reading this book and having watched every episode of Air Crash Investigations (known overseas as Mayday) I will still love it. But my goodness, the tales of what caused so many planes to crash really is an eyeopener. I recommend this to you. But on the understanding that when on your next flight you watch the safety demonstration before it takes off, and you have located and counted where all the safety exits off the plane are.
Just in case you need them.
However, I was looking for a book which contains more technical detail. The analysis of any crash is a lengthy process which consists of eliminating possible hypotheses about the disaster. The answer to what happened is whatever remains. All the summaries are accurate but it would be good to know why these particular conclusions were drawn. There are good reasons known exceedingly well by the author and they could be explained.
Nonetheless, it is a good book and I am glad to have purchased it.
