In The Crash Detectives, veteran aviation journalist and air safety investigator Christine Negroni takes the reader inside crash investigations from the early days of the jet age to the present, including the search for answers about what happened to the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. As Negroni dissects each accident, she explores the common themes and, most importantly, what has been learned from them to make planes safer. Indeed, as Negroni shows, virtually every aspect of modern pilot training, airline operation and aircraft design has been shaped by lessons learned from disaster. Along the way, she also details some miraculous saves, when quick-thinking pilots averted catastrophe and kept hundreds of people alive. Tying in aviation science, performance psychology and extensive interviews with pilots, engineers, human factors specialists, crash survivors and others involved in accidents all over the world, The Crash Detectives is an alternately terrifying and inspiring book that might just cure your fear of flying, and will definitely make you a more informed passenger.

In 2010, thousands of feet in the air above Singapore, the 469 passengers aboard QF32 found themselves in a crisis that no one could have anticipated when the A380 in which they were flying suffered a catastrophic explosion. Captain Richard de Crespigny and his crew confronted extraordinary challenges over the next four hours, with only three partially working engines, and a potentially explosive plane facing an imminent emergency landing. Even experienced crash-investigators later revealed they thought recovery in such circumstances was impossible. Yet in the end all aboard walked away safely. Why was there a seemingly miraculous outcome to what could so easily have become one of the world's worst aviation disasters? And how did the captain and his crew remain so calm in such a stressful situation? The answer is leadership, teamwork and skill. In Fly!, Richard de Crespigny shares the insights and techniques he built up over decades in the high-pressure world of military and civilian aviation. Covering leadership, teamwork, risk-assessment, decision-making, crisis management, lifelong resilience and more, it's a book whose wisdom can be applied to challenges and opportunities in the workplace as well as to life. Including exclusive insights from fellow hero pilot Sully Sullenberger, astronaut Neil Armstrong, NASA's Gene Kranz and others who have, like Richard de Crespigny, succeeded under intense pressure, Fly! will enable everybody to perform at their best and to succeed in any situation.

Everyone deserves a better life through a better home. Improving your home can upgrade your life. Are you thinking about remodeling, renovating, adding-on or building your home? "Revivify Your Home" will change how you approach your project. Author Grace Mase, founder and CEO of BEYREP, is like a fairy godmother for home improvements. She will provide you peace of mind by helping you take control of your home improvement project and avoid the costly heartaches. Like tidying up with Marie Kondo’s KonMari Method, Grace will show you a simple and strategic framework to guide you through the journey to successfully achieve your home improvement goals. When starting a major home improvement project, many homeowners would cold-call contractors or glorified handymen to gut and remodel their house without an architectural plan. It is like asking urgent care to perform delicate heart surgery without an attending heart surgeon's guidance. Fortunately, no reputable urgent care facility would take such a request, but not all contractors and handymen share the same ethical standards. This approach is a huge gamble. Perhaps it is not surprising that homeowner frustration with home improvement projects has consistently ranked as one of the top consumer complaints nationwide for over twenty years, according to the National Association of Consumer Agency Administrators and the Consumer Federation of America. Grace has heard many horror stories of home improvement projects gone wrong and transformed several potential disasters into successful projects. With architecture degrees from UC Berkeley and Yale University and experience as a former UC Berkeley Campus Architect, she has numerous successful renovation projects under her professional belt. Many homeowners stumble through their home improvement project because they are not prepared and don’t know what to expect. They don’t enjoy it and feel like they are on an emotional rollercoaster. Most of them don’t realize that renovating or remodeling their home is a significant emotional as well as a financial investment and rush in unprepared for such a significant undertaking. Others want to improve their home, but never take the first step because of their fear of being taken advantage of, or fear of the unknown. Grace will guide you through the process of planning strategically, preparing mentally and emotionally, and making smart decisions that save time and save money. Drawn from her experience on thousands of projects, Grace shares her proven process that resulted in the creation of her patented BEYREP personalized online home improvement tool. Each chapter contains key insights, best practices, and strategies to help you through the process and bring order to chaos, ensuring your home improvement will be a rewarding experience that you’ll enjoy for a lifetime. "Revivify Your Home: Take Control of Your Home Improvement With Peace of Mind and Level Up Your Life" will help you upgrade your life by empowering you to improve your home with confidence and peace of mind.
