Chris Bohjalian's six favorite books about plane crashes

Chris Bohjalian latest novel, The Night Strangers, is a ghost story that begins with a plane crash.

At The Week magazine he came up with a list of six favorite books about plane crashes, including:
Outliers by Malcom Gladwell

Most of Outliers is about why some people are preternaturally successful. My favorite chapter, however, is "The Ethnic Theory of Plane Crashes." The black box transcripts are riveting, as are Gladwell's insights into how the catastrophes that he details could have been avoided.
Read about the other books on the list.

Check out Malcolm Gladwell's six best books.
