NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Negroni is a talented aviation journalist who clearly understands the critically important part the human factor plays in aviation safety Captain Chesley Sully Sullenberger pilot of US Airways 1549 the Miracle on the Hudson A fascinating exploration of how humans and machines fail leading to air disasters from Amelia Earhart to MH370 and how the lessons learned from these accidents have made flying saferIn The Crash Detectives veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni takes us inside crash investigations from the I had the same thoughts about this book as another reviewer first I thought the title was misleading and second I thought it could use some editing and a change in focus The title Crash Detectives led me to think the book would be about the people who actually investigate plane crashes Instead it s of a scattered collection of stories about various airplane mishaps and in some cases the politics behind assigning blame At times the book felt like a summary of other people s books about air disasters rather than a complete narrative I almost always wanted details either about the disaster itself the crew or the passengers And I wanted her to tell me a story from start to finish rather than jumping away in the middle while acknowledging that she was leaving the reader hanging If you know you re leaving me hanging please don t Also the author inserts herself into the narrative at random times I didn t find anything wrong with this on the face of it but if she was going to do so I really wanted to know Who is she How is she connected to the airline industry What s her actual job or her expertiseAll in all this was an interesting look at air disasters and mishaps and the airline industry s responses to disaster but it felt like a keynote speech for an industry conference rather than a nonfiction book for the layperson

    I'll echo what some other reviewers have said—this is an interesting topic but the book badly needed an editor to impose some order The stories and topics are all jumbled up as if the author put everything in a blender then poured it onto the page In particular I will wait a little longer for a fuller orderly book to co
