It is literally a second-by-second examination of the event. Great attention to detail (you'll learn quite a bit about the A320 avionics - and you will enjoy it), superbly written. An incredible book. Langewiesche at his best.
Has much repetitive information (and an almost uncomfortable amount of name-dropping). It could, and should, be 40% shorter. But the good parts are worth it.
If you have read good fiction, you will quikly reject this - it is full of clichés and weak characters and situations. At times, it sounds like a student's essay (in a bad way). Steer clear.
Many of the 'skills' it teaches are mundane, barely relevant. But it has a few good ones. Bonus points for the narration, by James May himself.
This is better researched and argued than any of Michael Moore's works. An extremely hard-hitting book that also has humor and wit (eXile readers will know what I am talking about). Taibbi at his best. A must listen.
This is a collection of newspaper columns in which Ozzy answered questions about health. Each one is quite short (1 to 2 minutes), which I found a bit jarring - you are constantly changing subjects. A good book, but probably more enjoyable in its written form.
If you are an introvert, you will greatly enjoy this book - and if you are an extrovert, you definitely should read it. The first half is charming, but the second is a bit repetitive. That prevents a top rating. But this is a good 3-star book.
Poorly researched, poorly written. Sounds like a (bad) magazine article with lots of filler. Clarkson deserved a better book.
Gives too much attention to the political side of things and does not have the fantastic amount of technical detail the author is known for. Still a very good book.
Great account of Microsoft's early years. Too bad it is only a third of the book. The rest is about Allen's other activities, which are not so interesting.
