This book is half autobiography and half a retelling of the events of January 15th, 2009. It's a great account of those events from the first person viewpoint of the man who miraculously landed a plane in the Hudson River.

My favorite is when he tells the air traffic guy that they will be in the Hudson and the traffic controller says, "Can you repeat that?" Awesome.

Overall, I'm very impressed at the humility and "good Samaritan" attitude that Sully carries around with him always. No doubt this is why everyone loves him so much: They can praise him until the ends of the earth and he will never get big headed or puffed up about it. As his wife says, "he still snores!!"
