“The Skies Belong to Us is one of the most exciting and fascinating books that I've read this year. It recreates a time when American skyjackings were so common – and casual – that they occurred every week, and brings you into the thrilling heart of one of the most audacious hijackings in history/5().
"The Skies Belong to Us" had all the qualities of an excellent True Crime book. It was an interesting topic, well researched and written. The "golden age of skyjacking" is a little remembered event in our nation's history and Koerner expertly weaves together the overall story of the trend and the effect it had on sky travel and security while 4/5.
A riveting and illuminating book that will hold you in its spell. ” –David Grann, bestselling author of THE LOST CITY OF Z One of the most exciting, fascinating, best books I’ve read this year.
“The level of detail in The Skies Belong to Us is outstanding, and it’s these quirky pieces that make the book so mesmerizing essential reading for anyone interested in aviation or the cultural history of the ’60s and ’70s, but honestly I don’t know how anyone could read this book and not find it enthralling.”–MetroPulse/5().

Many of the crew members portrayed in the book are people I was familiar with/5(40). Brendan I. Koerner’s new book, “The Skies Belong to Us” sums up a period when hijacking of airliners was commonplace by telling the tale of.
Yet The Skies Belong to Us is more than just an enthralling yarn about a spectacular heist and its bittersweet aftermath. It is also a psychological portrait of America at its most turbulent, and a testament to the madness that can grip a nation when politics fail.
But “The Skies Belong to Us” has a more urgent theme, though Koerner is less explicit about it: the often circumstantial nature of political violence.
