"Excellent read. Where the film concentrates on events after the water landing in the Hudson, the book focuses far more on the life of Captain 'Sully'. Includes insights into his love of flying, his training including time in the military, his interest in safety and teamwork and his fears for pilots training and working in commercial airlines today. A must read for anyone interested in human factors in the workplace." - Amazon Review.
