A must-have for the reluctant flier!,
This review is from: Flying Without Fear 101 questions answered: 101 Fear of Flying Questions Answered (Paperback)
If, like me, you break into a cold sweat at the very thought of going within fifty feet of an aeroplane, and have acquired a wide experience of holidays in the UK and France rather than face the trauma, this book is definitely for you!!
A spin-off from the highly successful course of the same name, the book is written in a down to earth and very readable style, and without patronising the reader it uses sufficient technical detail and explanation to inspire confidence (did you know how many back up computers they have on an aircraft? Why lift really won't let it just fall out of the sky?) and goes a long way towards dispelling the myths and irrational fears that inspire the nightmares of us nervous passengers. I'm taking my first flight abroad in over twenty years in a couple of days' time and reading and re-reading the information contained in '101 Questions' is proving invaluable in enabling me to approach the experience in a positive frame of mind!
