A good read, and quite informative in a breezy, conversational way. Author-aviator Patrick Smith answers all sorts of questions not normally addressed in books of this genre. (Personally, I love his eye-rolling take on the whole Sully Sullenberger "Miracle On the Hudson hero" thing).
If you like to fly, or like me prefer to stay on the ground and read books about flying, "Cockpit Confidential" is worth a look.
