Review

If you are looking for an iconic figure of heroism, you can't do much better than Captain Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger III...Not only did he get an airliner from nearly a kilometre up in the air to ground level without the aid of engines, he was also the last to leave the plane after checking everyone had escaped... --BBC Radio 4 - Today Programme, Friday 30 October

This week Captain Sullenberger landed in London to receive the "Master's Medal" from the Guild of Air Pilots & Air Navigators on behalf the crew of US Airways Airbus A320 and to tell the full story of his flight into the Hudson on January 15. His arrival coincides with the launch of his book, Highest Duty -- compiled with impressive alacrity -- which describes Flight 1549 and his life leading up to it.
--The Times, Friday 30 October

From the Back Cover

Now a major motion picture from Clint Eastwood, starring Tom Hanks—the inspirational autobiography by one of the most captivating American heroes of our time, Capt. ‘Sully’ Sullenberger—the pilot who miraculously landed a crippled US Airways Flight 1549 in New York’s Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew.

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed a remarkable emergency landing when Captain "Sully" Sullenberger skillfully glided US Airways Flight 1549 onto the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew. His cool actions not only averted tragedy but made him a hero and an inspiration worldwide. His story is now a major motion picture from director / producer Clint Eastwood and stars Tom Hanks, Laura Linney and Aaron Eckhart.

Sully's story is one of dedication, hope, and preparedness, revealing the important lessons he learned through his life, in his military service, and in his work as an airline pilot. It reminds us all that, even in these days of conflict, tragedy and uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for—that life's challenges can be met if we're ready for them.
