About the Book

Now a major motion picture from Clint Eastwood, starring Tom Hanks

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed a remarkable emergency landing when Captain “Sully” Sullenberger skillfully glided US Airways Flight 1549 onto the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 passengers and crew. His cool actions not only averted tragedy, but made him a hero and an inspiration worldwide. His story is now a major motion picture from director-producer Clint Eastwood, starring Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, and Laura Linney.

Sully's story is one of dedication, hope, and preparedness, revealing the important lessons he learned through his life, in his military service, and in his work as an airline pilot. It reminds us all that, even in these days of conflict, tragedy, and uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for-that life's challenges can be met if we're ready for them.
