"..refreshingly candid and unrestrained." "..story of human drama and shocking corporate malfeasance." "..advice for working with consultants is particularly astute." -- Bookwire (December, 2005)
From the Publisher
Reader feedback shows that the book appeals strongly to a broad array of readers including CEOs, executives, business students, and anyone who loves a good story.
Naturally, it appeals to aviation buffs along with all those interested in Delta.
Readers are saying the book engages them quickly and, once involved in the book, they want to continue reading. Many report reading it in one or two sittings; some report getting up in the middle of the night to finish it.
A consistent comment has been that the book will be an excellent case study for use in a graduate business school, undergraduate course or an internal company program on leadership and management.
This book makes a special holiday or other gift for a boss; fellow executive; business student; aviation buff; Delta or other airline employee or retiree; any reader who appreciates a good story in a well-written book.

Nolan seems to take pleasure in destroying the image of Delta Air Lines, which towards the end of the book he admits he has personal interests in Delta in the form stock that lost an enormous amount of value after several event caused Delta's stock price to plunge. Nolan is neither competent enough or neutral enough to write this book.
I am not saying that Delta has not had its problems. All companies have. What I am saying is that if you read this book check the facts and figures yourself. Do not simply take Nolan's word on anything in this book.
