Boeing’s production-line shutdown is nearly a decade old too.

Notably his prediction that Airbus would never sell en Boeing versus Airbus is certainly not as good as Newhouse’s earlier book The Sporty Book which covered the major events in the airplane manufacturing industry during the s.

In the midst of this dogfight, Boeing has changed chief executive officers two times. As with many books on the aviation industry this has quickly dated having been written before delivery of the first B and when the development of the A was barely begun.


Good Read, Book felt like an insider information. A purge there has taken out other high-profile executives who once seemed the best in their business. More a collection of newspaper articles than a historical account. Excellent read for anyone interested in learning more about how deals are made in the commercial aviation business. However, despite the fact that Newhouse’s conclusions and forecasts have subsequently proven to have been very solid, the research effort for the book seems perfunctory at best.

The current fight has produced dozens of telling anecdotes, some of them repeated aigbus Newhouse and credited to newspaper and magazine reports. A somewhat lackluster sequel to “The Sporty Game.

Would have made a great 2 part series in the business section. This makes it sometimes not so pleasurable to read through.
