For millions of people, travel by air is a confounding, uncomfortable, and even fearful experience. Patrick Smith, airline pilot and author of the Web's popular "Ask the Pilot" column, separates fact from fallacy and tells you everything you need to know:
Cockpit Confidential covers not only the nuts and bolts of flying, but also the grand theater of air travel, from airport architecture to inflight service to the excitement of travel abroad. It's a thoughtful, funny, at times deeply personal look into the strange and misunderstood world of commercial flying.

This book is as boring as the narrator was who read it. If this book was the black-box flight recorder, you wouldn't recover it to find out what went wrong. Just leave it.
A trivial man
A petulant, whiny author with a self serving agenda, who took time from flying around on his high horse to write an almost unreadable book. Kudos, to the narrator for breathing at least a little life into this otherwise benighted tome.
Sadly, not much here. A mile wide and an inch deep. Patrick Smith has good intentions here, but chooses no to go into depth on anything, except his commentary on airplane logos and paint jobs.
