"Scapegoat is a taut, suspenseful history. The opening chapters prompt heart-pounding excitement as Corsetti describes the dive from the perspective of both the crew and the passengers. The book is enthralling throughout, even as it shifts from the near crash to the more mundane hearings and investigations that followed." --Foreword Reviews
"The author sifted through a staggering depth of research and documentation about TWA Flight 841's high-altitude upset and aftermath and then boiled it all down into an intriguing investigative narrative." --Mark L Berry, author, 13,760 feet: My Personal Hole in the Sky
"This is the kind of case the Board has never had to deal with--a head-on collision between the credibility of a flight crew versus the airworthiness of the aircraft." --Leslie Dean Kampschror, National Transportation Safety Board Investigator-in-Charge
"Scapegoat is a scathing indictment of nearly everyone involved in the investigation, particularly the NTSB and Boeing. They quickly reached a conclusion - that the pilot and crew were hiding something - and ignored or minimized any evidence that suggested otherwise." --Readerviews
"Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Scapegoat: A Flight Crew's Journey from Heroes to Villains to Redemption is a consistently compelling read throughout and very highly recommended for community library collections." --Midwest Book Review
