This is one book that is fun to read even if you've seen the James Stewart movie about a scientist who believes a new type of airplane has a basic defect and will crash after so many hours in the air. Visualizing the well-cast actors as you read makes the book more interesting. The plot is well laid out and even though you know basically that the hero will be vindicated in his beliefs, it keeps your interest to the end.

A good story about aircraft engineering and the aspects of responsible engineering design in the presence of potential structural failure
