How to Land an A330 Airbus

And Other Vital Skills for the Modern Man

James May

Top Gear's James May presents his guide to the vital skills every modern man should have.

‘I reckon there are about twenty things a chap doesn t realise he should be able to do. Not stuff you can download from the internet at the touch of the button, but really important things. So, in this book, each is dealt with fully, and it s a good read rather than just boring facts. It s a series of chapters with some light gaggery, but also solid information and plenty of nice pictures and diagrams.’For example, in ‘How to land an airliner’ there is good background stuff about the likelihood of it ever falling to you (extremely unlikely), some stats on past dramas, plus good information on the controls, what they do and what they look like.’There s a range of subjects from the genuinely relevant how to deliver twins, for example to the absurd, such as how to play Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight Sonata’, so there s ample opportunity for me to rant, enthrall you with technical explanations and entrance you with interesting facts.’ – James May
