Tony Kern gets down to where the rubber meets the road. Rules, regulations, and safety systems are a necessary evil but ultimately we as individuals must perform to the highest standard to assure safe operations, whether it be in the field of aviation or medical or other. Author Kern helps us put it all in perspective and gives help for improvement. From A to Z, whether an Aviator or a medical Zombie working crazy hours, you need to read this book!

"The battle is complacency and apathy verses action and improvement, and it is a battle we all fight every day whether we recognize it or not. If you don't recognize you are in the fight, you are losing it."

A personal, practical guide on "how to wage and win the battle within" every pilot is fighting against errors. It's not about airline CRM theory or organization business ideas or stricter rules or better instruments---this book is all about our own biases, habits and expectations. It's all about achieving and maintaining a professional excellence mindset. Not as expansive as Kern's excellent Flight Discipline or Redefining Airmanship, but this is more recent and brings together lots of pratical ideas Kern has developed working with pilots in his 'Global War on Error.' If you are a pilot who wants to get good, this is a must read.

As a safety professional who is a pilot, I read Tony Kerns work and his work is part of my personal research library. His experience and insight into how people enter act with machines both in industry and in aviation is golden. If you are looking for why people get hurt, maimed, or killed read Kern and understand the issues.

By Cliff on August 27, 2013
I found this book helpful because it took many concepts that we hear on how to improve our lives in language that could be understood. As a pilot, it helps when information is given in a methodical logical fashion. Though not written in this way, the book is one where you can use as a reference and come back to it time and time again. Great book, only reason why it's five stars is because they don't have six.
