I hope its big enough

The book by Patrick Smith. Anyone else read it? Whatdya think?

I like it. Interesting to see a level-headed, intelligent reply to questions. A realy breath of fresh air after seeing many of CNN's Miles O'briens gut-wrenching attempts at explanations to similar questions.

Anyone else read it?
I've been reading his articles on www.salon.co for some time. I agree they are level-headed and thoughful. They also seem to be realistic to the nature of the business, yet still retain some of the joy of aviation.
My sister got me this book as a joke of sorts for my birthday this year. Pretty interesting reading, it puts things into laymen's terms very well.
