Matt Calkins (CEO/Appian)I grabbed a bunch of books because I was writing a board game on building an airline in the 1930s. The dependence on experienced labor, and thus the vulnerability to strikes; the dependence on the cost of fuel, an enormous input that fluctuates; and nationalism, the fact that nations subsidize their airlines—these factors make the airline industry so vulnerable.
Doing for the airline industry what Den of Thieves did for Wall Street, this book exposes the machinations of the men's club that runs the world's major air carriers. At once a de facto primer in modern business practices and a riveting history of the world's largest industry, Hard Landing presents an unforgettable portrait of the jet age itself.
