This book wasn’t what I expected at all. I’m a “judge a book by its cover” type gal, and this cover didn’t jump out at me. Also, because I’m not really an aviation enthusiast, I wasn’t sure if this book could grab and keep my attention. For the type of book it is, it did a pretty good job. I enjoyed the different quotes, some even from the Wright Brothers, which was neat. I like how the book is divided up into smaller books and chapters – it makes it easier to have a stopping point while I’m reading. Overall, I think this book is great for the older generation – the newer generation is too wrapped up in “instant gratification” and could lose interest if not careful.

About the Author:
Thomas Block has written a number of aviation-oriented novels, many which have gone on to acquire best-seller status in numerous countries. His novel writing began with the publication of “Mayday” in 1979. That novel was rewritten with his boyhood friend, novelist Nelson DeMille in 1998 and remains on DeMille’s extensive backlist. “Mayday” became a CBS Movie of the Week in October, 2005.
Other novels by Block include “Orbit” (a top bestseller in Germany, among other nations), “Airship Nine”, “Forced Landing” (also done as a radio serializatoin drama in Japan), “Skyfall”, “Open Skies” and “Captain”. Thomas Block is still writing both fiction and non-fiction, and has edited and updated his earlier novels into ebooks of all the major formats and also into new full-sized (trade soft cover) printed versions.
About the Book:
‘Captain’ is a novel that pits man against man while also pitting man against machine. It is a story about the need for human judgments, hard-learned experiences, gut feelings and unbridled perseverance in an effort to rise up against a world where the strict adherence to written rules, regulations and procedures have been accepted as the norm.
‘Captain’ is about the way real airline pilots think, feel and react, especially after those giant airliners that they’ve strapped themselves to have suddenly turned vicious and unpredictable.
