Peter Robison with Dominic Gates

Seattle investigative journalist Peter Robison, who writes for Bloomberg and Bloomberg Businessweek, tells the tawdry unraveling of Boeing and tragedy that it led to in his major new book, Flying Blind: The 737 Max Tragedy and the Fall of Boeing (Doubleday). 

“Vividly written and meticulously researched, Flying Blind is a story everyone—every consumer, every citizen, every worker in every industry—needs to read. Peter Robison brilliantly places Boeing’s deadly downfall within the larger tragedy of an American business culture that gradually has smashed every altar but the one where the bottom line is worshipped.”—Diana B. Henriques.

“Peter Robison’s compelling and richly reported Flying Blind is about so much more than the sad decline of Boeing and the tragic mistakes that led to the 737 Max disaster. It’s also the urgent story of how the almighty profit motive supplanted a culture of engineering excellence in boardrooms across America and the avoidable calamity that has impacted all of us as a result.”—Brad Stone.
