It is always good--inspiring and morally strengthening--to read about great people, to be stimulated with admiration, respect, to understand for how they react under pressure, how they got to be who they were, and how we can become like them. One of the unique features of this book that makes it different from other biographies, is that "Sully's" story is not a chapter in itself, but is told in bits and pieces against the background of other great people. For instance, his "cool" in his crises on the Hudson is found among others who train for crises so that at the moment, their thoughts are on the job they must do, not the danger they are in. Over and over again, we get to see the common threads among uncommon people, and are left with a sense of, "Yes, I can do this too."

Excellent is an understatement. This series of interviews opens our eyes to the real world. This should be required reading for all high school 10,11 & 12th grade students.
