An epic experience

I found this fascinating as I have seen the film & I thought this book was going to b the story as told in the film - but the in depth background of this brilliant man's reasoning really opened my eyes to what career pilots have to take on their shoulders every time they fly. I recommended the book to my book club for June & we also have a DVD evening every 6 months which is tonight - needless to say we r watching "SULLY" which will b gr8 4 everyone to know what actually followed after the landing - which is not detailed in the book.
