9780340994566: How to Land an A330 Airbus

"His tongue-in-cheek technical explanations here will have you howling with laughter ..."-Daily Telegraph

After being given yet another pointless "man manual" that told him fifty ways to tie a bow tie in under thirty seconds, James May, star of the international TV phenomenon Top Gear, was certain guys needed a different kind of book. This book, in fact.

He reckons there are nine vital things that a true man should be able to do. Not stuff you can download from the Internet, but really important things, like:

HOW TO LAND AN A330 AIRBUS IN AN EMERGENCY*
HOW TO PREPARE AND EAT YOUR BEST FRIEND
HOW TO DRIVE THE PEPPERCORN CLASS A 1 4-6-2 PACIFIC LOCOMOTIVE TORNADO
HOW TO DELIVER TWINS
HOW TO DEFUSE AN UNEXPLODED WORLD WAR II BOMB

The chances that you will ever meet with the circumstances outlined here are, frankly, very remote. But you're still better off knowing this stuff than not knowing it. Life is a lottery, and maybe, just maybe, it could be you who can do this stuff. But only if you've read this book.

*Authors Note: This guide has been prepared for use in an absolute dire, buttock-clenching emergancy. None of the advice inside has been sanctioned by Airbus, any of its associates, or anyone else really. Do not attempt to fly the A330 Airbus on a recreational basis, or use one for joyriding. The A330 is not a toy.

Introduction

Yes, there have been plenty of other books about so-called man skills, but they've all been a bit too bow-tie and light-a-barbecue for my liking.

This, I hope, is different. There are only nine topics, but they are not, as far as I can discern, covered anywhere else. That makes this book indispensable in a sea of duplicated "how to" manuals, the one tin of fortifying Spam in the post-apocalyptic corner shop of putrefying groceries.

The chances that you will ever meet with the circumstances outlined here are, frankly, very remote. But you're still better off knowing this stuff than not knowing it. One day, there may well be an A330 Airbus wandering pilotlessly over the Atlantic, and someone will have to land it.

Life is a lottery, and maybe, just maybe, it could be you. But only if you've read this book.
