“Sabbag examines the crash both as an outstanding reporter investigating an old story, talking to those involved and meticulously piecing together the evidence, and also as a survivor confronting his own demons and the inevitable vagaries of memory… A compelling and tightly written reconstruction of the crash and his struggle to come to terms with the near-death experience.”
-Boston Globe

“Sabbag has a knack for thumbnail portraits and sardonic humor… eloquent…”

“His most emotionally resonant book… A remarkably powerful, human story not merely of a plane crash but of the impact that one brief moment can have on an entire life… ”

“Wonderfully readable… Sabbag has a journalist’s eye for detail and a sardonic style that would be entertaining no matter the topic… The conclusions he comes to are thought-provoking and wise.”
-Minneapolis Star Tribune
