They are truly remarkable people.

True experiences of crash survivorsReviewed in Canada on 23 February 2021
Amazing stories from actual aircraft accidents and crashes. Very well written.

Inspirational TalesReviewed in the United States on 3 March 2020
As a plane crash survivor, and the author of a my own crash story, I can relate to all of the survivors in a very personal way. This book recounts the survivals of many individuals and introduced me to the Plane Crash Survivors Facebook group where I have interacted with a number of the people in this book while discussing our respective accidents. These stories inspire me as I look at them from the survivor's viewpoint. I strongly recommend this book for those that enjoy these stories of overcoming terror and surviving!
Outstanding Book!Reviewed in the United States on 28 October 2015
The Book "Bracing for Impact" is one of the only books I've read that explains what survivors of aircraft accidents have had to endure, from Ultra Light Planes to huge Commercial Jets. I give this book my highest recommendation for people interested in aircraft accidents. Of the 100's of thousands of people boarding a private aircraft, home made aircraft, or a Commercial aircraft today; the chances of an accident is miniscule, unless yours if the plane that happens to break the odds and go down. Despite the highly technical safety procedures and instruments of aircraft today, still these accidents still occur. This book gives you several chapters of the survival and pain and anguish of survivors from several of these incidents. From these stories one can "feel" what these survivors went through, as well as gather information how these people avoided becoming fatalities. A Great Book!

Air disasters from survivors' viewpointReviewed in the United States on 13 August 2019
I'm an air disaster junkie so when I ran across this book a few days ago I bought out. It is a compilation of stories from people who were in plane crashes and survived. Reasonably well written and informative, it was a quick and engrossing read.
Good Read and Safety ReminderReviewed in the United States on 8 July 2019
Book basically summarized some plane wrecks from a survialist point of view. Good information on how to survive an actual plane wreck. One thing to improve is the spelling of locations: in one sentence Greenville and then in two sentences the spelling Greensville.
