Présentation de l'éditeur

Following an in-flight engine explosion, senior flight attendant Nattanya Andersen was diagnosed by the airline's medical team with a lasting condition of post-traumatic stress disorder. Previously story-free, Nattanya's resulting health problems started to emerge and her career had to come to a halt. The corporate denial of Nattanya's problems led her to fight back. "Broken Wings" is the gripping account of the struggle with her employer, as well as the net of entangled difficulties woven by the entire airline industry with the help and obstacles of multi-government bureaucracies and so-called unions, all shamelessly manouvering to maximize profits (which are, most times, a minuscule financial gain per passenger, but since airlines have nearly five billion clients per year…).

The book grows to reveal the true and troubling general health issues afflicting professionals in the air. The airline industry is hoping that these rarely adressed insider's revelations injuring employees will not circulate among its paying customers (mainly frequent flying passengers!), as they are equally affected: the damaging consequences of insufficient air quantity and rarified oxygen, polluted (some times neuro-toxic) air quality, radiation exposure and other high-altitude consequences, turbulence effects, ensuing air rage, alcoholism, … a host of other dangers, problems and symptoms all affecting long-term and short-term health. This is a comprehensive account of health hazards from flying in the 21st century.

As pages turn, one dicovers the compelling drama, but – refreshingly – this courageous tale is not told from a powerless victim's position but with the use of ballance and humor for truth and justice. The passionate and caring soul of the author brings us to hope that, at some point, corporations will switch from a context of denial to a desire of monitoring and improving their employees' and customers' health and well-being. Finally available in the digital format, "Broken Wings" is a unique, fascinating, eye-opening must-read that will deeply touch all travel professionals and passengers.

Nattanya Andersen's cherished career as a flight-attendant for one of the world's largest airlines careened to a halt when a jet-engine-explosion five feet away from her mid-air left her with post-traumatic-stress-disorder (PTSD)

It was hard to continue to be on the writers side as the case just kept going on to become boring.

Except if purchased over the 'net, this book is not available in Australia. This is a definite shame, as Ms Andersen's story is one that needs to be told. I was lucky enough to be given a copy, and I found it absolutely gripping. If you're like me, you'll be pleasantly surprised at what this book is -not-....
This isn't just a book about the airline industry - don't make that mistake. It's much, much more. And it's not just dry facts and figures. Ms Andersen gives the reader a deep and clear glimpse into her soul as she chronicles her life leading up to the accident which changed her life, and her struggle with the union and her employers after the event.
It's also not a 'poor me' story. Throughout, the author is honest about her own mistakes and misjudgments, and her sincerity and honesty shine through clearly.
To me, this is a story about fear, betrayal and the phoenix-like rebirth of a soul. Ms Andersen emerges as a complete - albeit scarred - person from a situation which came close to breaking her. Even if you have no interest in the airline industry (although the statistics are quite amazing!) you will find Ms Andersen's story utterly compelling.
I would consider this to be a 'must read' book. Beware, though - once you get into this book, you won't rest until you've finished it!

Finally a book that spells out the truth about what being a flight attendant is all about!! Nattanya Andersen's descriptive powers made me feel like I was on that 727 with her, and she took me on her entire journey, never letting go of my attention. I have done a whole lot of reading with regard to this subject matter and in the end I have to say that this is the one book I go back to time and time again. Not only does it answer questions about PTSD, it also spells out quite clearly the dangers that all of us are exposed to while cruising at 33,000. As a frequent flier I feel that this book has really been an invaluable source of information that has greatly changed the way I travel. It has also been a great inspiration. As someone who has suffered from PTSD, brought on by an "airborne incident", I feel that this book has really influenced me profoundly.

As much as I have enjoyed the "Humorous" accounts of the flight attendant's life in such books as "Cabin Pressure", and as informative as Sandy Purl's "Am I Alive" was...I have to say that Ms Andersen's research and "Tell it as it is" style made this book well worth reading (more than once) and I have urged everyone I know to get a copy.

Brava Nattanya!!
