Glidepath Paperback – August 9, 2017
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

This book kept my interest from the get go and never led me astray. I thought I had figured out the plot a few times and then he'd take another turn and make me have to guess again. That's a good thing. And the length is good, too, without too much of that "filler" that so many authors have to put in for their books to be over 300 pages. I work out on an elliptical-type machine for 60-90 minutes a day and read my Kindle. I can usually tell how good a book is by how quickly the time passes while reading it. This book kept my attention so well that the time just flew by! I can't wait for the next episode of Max Fend to see where Mr. Watts takes him again!
As a pilot with an aerospace background, the concept of automatic flight just didn't put me into the page-turner mode (auto-land has been around since the 70's, and with all the drone activity today, a passenger flight without a pilot just doesn't sound as exciting as I suppose the author hoped). The background info on NextGen technology was a yawner, and the overall plot was far-fetched. The dialog in many places was for me just not believable and the characters I did not care enough about to worry how it might all turn out for them.
Morozo's main obstacle in the story is Charles's son Max Fend, who has some experience as a CIA operative. He enlists his former girlfriend, a computer whiz, and they attempt to find out who is behind the plot to down his fathers aircraft. Now that Morozo knows that Max out to prove the truth, the action heats up as the Fend Airliner is hijacked. With the help of the FBI, Max is almost killed as he zeros in on the truth. Their is a series of twists and turns as a major disaster is narrowly avoided.
Glidepath is an entertaining read that will keep your interest and for this reason, I award it five solid stars.
Well developed characters, strong plot with no chance of guessing where it will zig or zag. From the moment the Feebs take Max to their so-called safe house, to the airplane with an unconventional method of landing, I was unable to put it down.
Years ago I took a speed reading course and have been sorry ever since, because it helps me to finish reading a novel in too short an amount of time.
Glidepath went by way too quickly. Take it slowly and enjoy it, or rocket thru it. Either way, you'll love it.
So many of the similar books I read from some new authors get boring because they just seem to be copying another author with differently named characters and places, but the same basic story. Glidepath is different and fresh enough to easily hold my attention.
