The history of American Airlines from its inception in the Twenties as a mere collection of tiny carriers (aptly called a ``collection of spare parts flying in abysmally loose formation'') to its present-day status as a colossus of commercial aviation. Serling's detailed book is extremely well researched and very well written. As a corporate history the book will appeal to members of the business community as well as to flying enthusiasts. The descriptions of corporate struggles and personalities are insightful, and the accounts of airline operations and aircraft hardware are interesting to read. Recommended. William A. McIntyre, N.H.
