Reviews

How to Land a Plane explains simply and clearly the abiding mysteries of flight. -- Peter McKay * the Daily Mail * A description of what it's like to fly by a commercial pilot who is also a master prose stylist... This is a man who is at once a technical expert - he flies 747s across continents - and a poet of the skies. This couldn't be more highly recommended -- Alain de Botton Mr Vanhoenacker, fortunately for his readers, has lost none of his sense of wonder at the miracle of flight itself... a beautifully observedcollection of details, scenes, emotions and facts from the world above the world * the Economist * [An] ode to the wonder of flight in the tradition of the great pioneer pilot-author Antoine de Saint Exupery and Charles Lindbergh... flying remains a magical business -- Charles Bremner * The Times * Vanhoenacker is a remarkable writer. In Skyfaring he reveals his passion for flight, the mechanics of planes, the weightless, meaningful geography of the skies and the scent of the cities he flies to. He creates a still, almost poetic point in the turning, travelling world. This mesmerising book will make you view the world differently. All aboard! -- Helen Davies * Sunday Times * In our relentless pursuit of a fulfilled life, we've become a knowledge-hungry nation. The Little Ways To Live A Big Life series will feed your yearning for learning * Red Magazine * perfect inflight reading...brilliant * The Sunday Times *
