Product Description:

A collection of the most compelling remarks made about flying.

Review:

It is said there's a book in everyone, and Dave English's was coaxed out by associates and friends who told him he had so much written material on the thrill of flight that he should compile and share it. English, a full-time pilot and part-time aviation writer, had piles of passages about aviation from books, letters from people at Boeing and NASA, reflections, inventors, and groaner cliches from pilots. His volume of compelling words on flight is called Slipping The Surly Bonds and surly it is not. Entertaining and quickly gratifying it is. ( Business & Commercial Aviation 2001-11-01)

A new book by Pro Pilot contributing writer Dave English called Slipping The Surly Bonds: Great Quotations on Flight, captures the best quotes from da Vinci, Lindbergh, Armstrong, Yeager and others. ( Professional Pilot 1998-11-05)

"Slipping the Surly Bonds is the coffee-table, Christmas and birthday gift aviation fans have been looking for...better buy a few copies of this book; one to keep...the other to give away..." ( Aviation International News 1998-10-10)

A collection of memorable thoughts on flight ... quotations about one of humankind's greatest and most enduring accomplishments - the gravity-defying conquest of the skies. ( Airline Pilot 1998-10-01)

From man's earliest expressions on the magic of flight to the chilling last words of some of aviation's giants, Slipping The Surly Bonds: Great Quotations on Flight, is a unique collection of the most memorable thoughts on flight. Capturing flying's special allure and excitement as well as its humor and tragedy, this anthology of quotations by da Vinci, Lindbergh, Armstrong, Yeager, and others amply illustrates why, as aviation pioneer Otto Lilienthal rhapsodized, to fly is everything. ( Flight Training 1998-09-01)

A great selection of quotations on flight arranged in 14 chapters, that will serve as good reading for the soul as well as provide a resource of printed wisdom that pretty much covers the entire spectrum of aviation to date ... Thoughtful sayings, cliches, last words, cockpit humor -- it's all here, nicely printed, neatly arranged, and ready for use. ( The Southern Aviator 1998-07-24)
