    1. A bit of a disappointment. I am interested in the subject of air disasters and forensic investigations, and the specific key point of the book - using transcripts from cockpit audio recordings - was an intriguing one with plenty of appeal and potential insights.It just didn't quite work though. I felt there was too little information putting each of the featured disasters in context and often too little explanation of key aspects of the recorded cockpit conversations being presented. This meant [...]

    2. An exciting and heartbreaking read. A great introduction by the author sets the tone for a very informative book. Great description and explanation allowing for the lay-person to read this and not find it too much of a struggle. What would of made it perfect would have been some sketches or diagrams to show the position of the plane. Angles, altitudes and speed are all mentioned but it is hard to imagine the actual position of the plane during the emergency on upon landing. Nose down, leaning to [...]

    3. This book promised to be interesting, but alas didn't live up to that. There were a few gripping recordings, which showed cockpit crews struggling to prevent disaster, but most involved accidents that happened so quickly it was difficult to see what useful information the recordings could contain.Also detracting from the book were the large number of typos, I'm not sure if that was just the edition I had, but the copy-editor fell down on the job there!Still, I did find a few of the chapters very [...]

    4. This is a collection of 21 black box recording transcripts. I got into some of them but some went over my head. I tended to skip some parts of the transcripts as they were too technical for me!

    5. Right from the beginning of this book, I didn't have high hopes for it. The back of the book makes it sound rather good, and I was anticipating an easily three-star book, but nope. I feel like one star was generous. This book was bad, how some people rated it five stars is beyond me.The main problem with this book was that the transcripts, not only were they not focused on the disaster area so you had to read sections of unnecessary dialogue from people in the cockpit, but it was overly technica [...]

    6. A collection of 21 transcripts of black box recordings from crashes ranging from 1991 and 2006. very compelling reading and a fascinating insight into a world of the pilot. The Air France Concorde transcript was the most interesting and I remembered the news of flight TWA 800 going down and reading the transcript was very interesting.
