I am not the ideal person to have read this book because flying terrifies me. And to be honest, those reviews who contend that the book is somewhat mis-titled are correct. I'll get to that in a minute.

First, I have to thank My Book Box because I doubt I would have read this if it hadn't been a selection for Oct 2016.

Negroni's somewhat mis-titled book isn't about those who investigate the crashes of airplanes, but more about why those crashes occur. Once you realize this, the book is highly enjoyable and readable. And at times a bit scary. But I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. The analysis of various incidents seems spot on and there is a nice variety in terms of reasons for the crashes.
