Why flying is no fun anymore (and may be dangerous)

A longtime professional colleague, Bill McGee, former editor of Consumer Reports Travel Letter and widely respected for his aviation expertise, has just published an important book for anyone who travels on commercial airliners. The work, Attention All Passengers: Why flying is no fun anymore (and may be dangerous), is getting good reviews. I haven't read a copy yet but you can hear what the author is telling reporters in interviews, including one by NPR "Fresh Air" co-host Dave Davies, that aired today and can be found at this link.
