Publisher's Summary

Originally published by Wm. Morrow, in 1995, Skygods is the saga of America's most glamorous airline - from its meteoric ascent to its plunge to extinction. Pan Am blazed the way across the world's oceans with its magnificent Clipper ships, launched the first international jet service, was the first to fly the behemoth 747, was the lead customer for America's SST and the Concorde, and was even taking reservations for the first commercial flights to the moon.
Told from multiple viewpoints - pilots, stewardesses, management executives - Skygods is the life story of an American icon.

Surprisingly Fascinating

I bought this book having read something similar about Lockheed some years ago. This feels more like a novel, in a way, than hiatory. The book is broken up into nice short chapters, each with a complete story of it's own, which add to make a fascinating tale of corporate hubris. I ended up unable to stop myself from listening virtually non stop.
I would, however, recommend that you listen to a sample. I found that I liked the narrator but I can imagine that his drawl may annoy some.
For me though, one I am glad to have in my library, and one that will bear another listen.
