I agree with several of the good and the not so good comments people have made about this book. First off, the book is definitely worth the cost and is a good read. Even though I had read through the final NTSB report when it came out and can say there is nothing new in Run the Storm, I still found it hard to put down. The timeline is laid out pretty well, the language is not overly technical, and there is not much bias in regards to conditions that lead up to the disaster. The use of voice transcripts from the recovered ships "black box" were very effective in building the narrative. As for the reason I give this book only 4 stars, the writing could have been edited better. The language at time gets overly flowery like the author bent WAY over backwards to attempt prose when a simple description would have sufficed, and there are sentences that contain several commas and semicolons (as in several of both in a single sentence) that run on for an entire paragraph. That seemed to get worse in the latter half of the book.

Glad I bought this book and I can say that last section describing when the ship went down, told almost entirely from the voice transcripts, was downright chilling.
