On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed a remarkable emergency landing when Captain "Sully" Sullenberger skillfully glided US Airways flight 1549 onto the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew. His cool actions not only averted tragedy but made him a hero and an inspiration worldwide. His story is now a major motion picture from director/producer Clint Eastwood and starring Tom Hanks, Laura Linney, and Aaron Eckhart.

As a wife of an a320 captain, listening to this book was an emotional experience. It was well written taking the reader into the history of Capt. Sullebergers early life and love of flying through his military career and all the experiences that shaped his life.

Upon listening to him recount flight 1549 and the rescue that followed I was moved to tears... I was also moved by the amount of people this incident reached.

The parts I loved most about this book was when he talked about his wife and kids. The live and respect he has for them really comes through. I felt an understanding and kinship with Lorrie and what she goes through as the wife of a pilot. I felt deeply for her.

I know I will listen to this book more than once...

An early architect of punk rock's sound, style, and fury, whose lip-curling sneer and fist-pumping persona vaulted him into pop's mainstream as one of MTV's first megastars, Billy Idol remains, to this day, a true rock 'n' roll icon. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, Dancing with Myself, Idol delivers an electric, searingly honest account of his journey to fame - from his early days as front man of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to the decadent life atop the dance-rock kingdom he ruled.
