The 9 11 Commission Report by National Commission O Terrorist Attacks Summary

It has, improbably, been called uncommonly lucid, even riveting by The New York Times, and it was a finalist for the 2004 National Book Awards nonfiction honor. It is a literally chilling read, especially in its minute-by-minute description of the events of the morning of 9/11 inside the Twin Towers.It is The 9/11 Commission Report, which was, before its publication, perhaps one of the most anticipated government reports of all time, and has been since an unlikely bestseller. The official statement by the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States-which was instituted in late 2002 and chaired by former New Jersey Governor Thomas Kean-it details what went wrong on that day (such as intelligence failures), what went right (the heroic response of emergency services and self-organizing civilians), and how to avert similar future attacks.Highlighting evidence from the day, from airport surveillance footage of the terrorists to phone calls from the doomed flights, and offering details that have otherwise gone unheard, this is an astonishing firsthand document of contemporary history. While controversial in parts-it has been criticized for failing to include testimony from key individuals, and it completely omits any mention of the mysterious collapse of WTC 7-it is nevertheless an essential record of one of the most transformational events of modern times.

The Psychology of Flight by Alex Varney Summary

This book has been put back into print after many years of absence because "The Psychology of Flight" can provide modern pilots - everyone from new students to seasoned professionals - what's needed to continuously make themselves ready for whatever the piloting tasks ahead might be. In essence, it's nothing less than an exquisitely written 'Checklist for the Self'. While it's important to study and understand the rules, the procedures and the particulars of each airplane that a pilot gets into, it is even more important to have a good understanding of the inner workings of the flesh and blood person who will be pushing the levers, pressing the switches, turning the wheels and making the decisions that affect the course of these technological marvels that are airplanes. You. This is not the sort of book that you should read only once, not just because there is so much inside, but also because we need refresher training now and again in this most important of all aviation related subjects: basically, a pilot's inner workings. Keep this book on a convenient shelf to be pulled down periodically for recurrent proficiency in the area that is ultimately most important to a pilot: before we can control an airplane with the necessary skills and consistency, we also need to understand how to control ourselves as well as humanly possible.
