8 out of 10

This is a collection of accounts of the more notorious air disasters that took place between 1952 and 1977, including the DH Comets that suffered metal fatigue, the DC-10's cargo-door malfunction that had disastrous consequences, and the collision of two 747s at Tenerife. There are excerpts from the cockpit voice recorder transcriptions, sketches that illustrate the sequence of events leading to the disaster, and explanations of the events and the investigations that followed - readable and fascinating.

I'm offering this for a bookray (see forum post here).

Bookray/ring instructions:

When you receive the book, please journal it, and PM the next person in line for their address so you'll have it ready when you've finished the book.

Note: even if you've sent books to that person before, please PM them before mailing this one, to confirm that the address is correct and that they're able to take on a bookring book at this time.
Try and read the book promptly - ideally, within a month of receiving it. (If you expect to take longer, you can request to be put at the end of the list. If you find you're swamped with other books when the person before you contacts you about the bookring, you can ask to be skipped, and then let me know whether you'd like to be moved down the list or dropped entirely. If you receive the book and find it's taking longer than you'd planned to get through it, I'd appreciate an update in its journal entries or on your profile, just to let me and the other participants know you haven't forgotten it.)

When you're ready to pass the book along, please make another journal entry containing your comments about the book and stating where you've sent it, and set the book's status code to "traveling". [If you find that you're having problems contacting the next person in line, or don't think you can manage to mail the book as originally agreed, please let me know; I'll be glad to try to work something out.]

The illustrations are the best part of the book. The text while informative was rather dry. It ended up being a chore to read.
