A humorous perspective on what really goes on inside an airplane, this book begins by presenting the "Six Commandments of a Backseat Flyer" and then offers "insider" information on what all those airborne bumps and whirrs are, what kind of training pilots have, and more. The author, herself an experienced pilot, also provides helpful advice on curbing fear of flying, eliminating jet lag, treating air sickness and natural remedies, and protecting yourself from airborne germs.
