Description

Now a major motion picture from Clint Eastwood, starring Tom Hanks - the inspirational autobiography by one of the most captivating American heroes of our time, Capt. "Sully" Sullenberger - the pilot who miraculously landed crippled US Airways flight 1549 in New York's Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew.

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.

Sully's story is one of dedication, hope, and preparedness, revealing the important lessons he learned through his life, in his military service, and in his work as an airline pilot. It reminds us all that even in these days of conflict, tragedy, and uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for - that life's challenges can be met if we're ready for them.

Inspiring biography--but incomplete

While I enjoyed the low key storytelling, I was hoping for additional facts, data and information about the NTSB investigation which is included in the movie made from this book. I was glad to have a chance to learn about the challenges faced by air crews and how passenger safety is impacted.

For once, the movie will be better than the book

Any additional comments?

Love the story of survival and the lessons of being prepared. But this book has way too much self-focus, right down to the primary-school essays from Sully. Had it been half the length, it would have been spectacular.

Really Dull.

I admire what he was able to do by landing the plane, but this book is BORING!! it's more of a biography of his wife oddly enough.

Loved the move, listening a bit dull.

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

I watched the movie and feel the story itself is very moving. Listening to the story was a bit like being in a board meeting listening to someone read minutes from a meeting. I felt liked it lacked emotion.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not sure, probably Sully, as that is who the story is about.

Have you listened to any of Michael McConnohie and Chesley B. Sullenberger ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't

Humility and Gratitude Prevail ...

Beautifully sensitive and real, the book takes the reader into the background and experience of Captain Sullenberger, both before and after the "Miracle on the Hudson". The last couple of chapters are read by him personally, which adds even more depth and sentiment to an already riveting story. Excellent read - looking forward to seeing the newly-released movie and see how it compares.

Inspirational

Amazing book that not only talked about the epic flight, but about Sully's life in whole. This book was extremely moving and inspirational. I often found myself reflecting on my personal life.

Sully Soars - Don't Wait For The Movie

Every parent, coach, teacher, student and leader should listen to or read this book for three core reasons. (1) it gives you a greater understanding and appreciation for the men and women who are pilots. Next time I fly I am going to be sure to greet the pilot and thank them for their service! (2) it gives you a clear example of the impact we can have when prepare and our growth minded. We all face challenges but if you prepare yourself by learning to grow and stretch yourself those challenges become easier to tackle. (3) it gives you a greater want to love and appreciate those family members and friends around you. Let's face it, life moves pretty fast. It's easy to keep busy and miss what is probably the most important thing-- relationships! This book reminded me to cherish and embrace those relationships. -- they give life substance and meaning!

Sully is an all around decent man

What did you love best about Sully?

I like how Sully is an all around decent men, not charismatic, not a larger than life hero. We all like to think that in a crisis we could be like Sully.

What did you like best about this story?

the evens of 3 minute flight are riviting
