On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed a remarkable emergency landing when Captain "Sully" Sullenberger skillfully glided US Airways Flight 1549 onto the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. His cool actions not only averted tragedy but made him a hero and an inspiration worldwide. Highest Duty is Sully's story-a story of dedication, hope, and preparedness, revealing the important lessons he learned through childhood, in his military service, and in his work as a commercial airline pilot. It reminds us all that, even in these days of war, tragedy, and economic uncertainty, there are values still worth fighting for-that life's challenges can be met if we're ready for them.
Captain Chesley B. Sullenberger is an airline pilot and safety expert, and has served as an instructor and an Air Line Pilots Association safety chairman and accident investigator. He lives in Danville, California, with his wife and family. Jeffrey Zaslow is a Wall Street Journal columnist, and, with Randy Pausch, coauthor of The Last Lecture, and the author of The Girls from Ames. Zaslow lives in Michigan with his family.
