Reviews

"The author does a first-rate job... The easy-to-read and engaging manner of the writing makes this an interesting historical as well as scientific text."

"Bibel takes the reader, chattily and with skill, through his analysis of a series of fatal accidents."

"Offering insights into how aviation accident investigations are conducted, Bibel addresses the causes of such accidents, from in-flight breakup to metal fatigue and combustion, and the lessons learned. Enriched with many drawings, graphs, and equations... Highly recommended."

"A fascinating book."

"The author succeeds in both science and storytelling."

"The easy-to-read and engaging manner of the writing makes this an interesting historical as well as scientific text."

"Beyond the Black Box provides a behind-the-scenes look at plane crash investigations."

"Bibel takes responsibility for his readers' understanding... using similes based on everyday events and objects."

"Terrific book."

"A good book that explains how and why airplanes can crash through descriptions of a wide variety of crashes and near-crashes followed by explanations of the science that governed those incidents. The stories of the accidents, and their explanations, read like mysteries; I found myself reading faster to get to the end of the story and find out why things happened the way they did. Bibel clearly has a love for all things aeronautical and that shines through on every page. "
