This review is from: Ask the Pilot (Paperback)
There are hundreds of books about fighter pilots but it's much harder to find interesting books about air travel. This one helps fill the gap.
Patrick Smith - an airline pilot - has been hitting the nail on the head for a long time at the website Salon in his regular column and now he's done the same in this book. He understands the kinds of topics that interest laymen and knows how to make them interesting and readable.
Whether he's spelling out his strong, well-argued opinions about topics such as airport security, hammering the media for its ignorance on aviation matters (as a journalist, I have to agree) or explaining the ins and outs of turbulence he's always a good read.
