review 1: Parts of the book are great. I loved the insider's view of the airline industry, working conditions, and crazy passengers. But Poole's personal story wasn't all that interesting. Framing it through her experience was a reasonable method, but I just never cared for her story as much as the generalizations.

I think I've always secretly wanted to be a flight attendant for various reasons, and this book made me realize that it's probably a much easier game when you're single or at least childless, so who knows, maybe it will be my second career way down the road. An entertaining read nonetheless. less
