Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger’s New Autobiography, "Highest Duty", Offered For 100% Rewards At BooksOnBoard


Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the heroic airline pilot whose emergency landing on the Hudson River earned the world’s admiration, releases his inspirational autobiography “Highest Duty” today. To help get the word out on Sully’s story, BooksOnBoard (, the largest independent eBook retailer, is offering “Highest Duty” for a net cost of $0, with 100% back in Rewards Dollars for the industry standard Adobe ePub format.

“Sully is a hero,” says BooksOnBoard CEO Bob LiVolsi. “We want people to know more about his compelling story, and we want them to read it as an eBook. So we’re offering 100% Rewards back on Highest Duty in the industry standard Adobe ePub eBook format.”

In January 2009, the world witnessed one of the most remarkable emergency landings in history when Captain Sullenberger brought a crippled US Airways flight onto the Hudson River, saving the lives of all of the passengers and crew aboard. The successful outcome was the result of effective teamwork, Sully’s dedication to airline safety, his belief that a pilot’s judgment must go hand-in-hand with -- and can never be replaced by -- technology, and forty years of careful practice and training.
