Life, Love, and a Hijacking: My Pan Am Memoir, by Wendy Sue Knecht, brings to readers an insider's view of what it was like to be a stewardess for the iconic Pan Am. The book opens with a priceless letter that begins with "dear captain" and then goes on to chronicle the author's exciting career. She details the hiring process, the rules and regulations, the training and her experiences. With enthusiasm and a love of adventure, she embarked on a wonderful career that came with many perks. She writes with respect for Pan Am and for her fellow workers from the beginning to the end of her time with them. Her life after Pan Am continues to be a marvelous adventure, as well.

Included in the memoir is a copy of the Pan Am Non-Revenue Passenger Guide which is a document detailing the dress code for passengers. Not to be missed is the page with "10 Best Skinny Travel Tricks: How Not to Come Home with Excess Baggage" as well as other travel tips and recipes.

I found this book to be written with candor, wit, and compassion. It was interesting, touching and informative. I highly recommend reading this book.

I received this book for free and the opinions expressed in this review are my own. ( )
