Publisher's Summary

The inside story of crisis and turmoil at American Airlines during the 12 years following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
In the twelve years following 9/11, American Airlines lost billions of dollars and endured years of crisis and turmoil. Financial upheaval, the crash of Flight 587, grueling confrontations with labor, a rival’s push to acquire the company, and a challenging fight with the government tested the mettle and fortitude of its top executives. Against all odds, American found a way to save what was once the world’s largest airline from certain ruin. 
Told through the eyes of American’s chief lawyer, this insider’s story of intrigue of the unfolding events is set against a personal look at the innermost workings of the sexiest industry in the world.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

not worth the time , unless you can get over the sound recording , which sounded like it was recorded in someones garage . it was horrible

What did you like best about this story?

Decent book. Recording horrendous.

The story is at times hard to follow, especially for those unfamiliar with the legal jargon, but overall interesting perspective from inside one of the largest mergers in American history. the biggest downfall for this audio book was the recording. It sounds like it was recorded on an iPhone in a tin shed. Some chapters are better than others, but all are still pretty bad.
