The Naval Institute Press has released a preview of my new book One More Good Flight - The Amelia Earhart Mystery.
You can read it at https://issuu.com/usnibooks/docs/gillespie_one_more_good_flight_book_prvw

The preview includes:
• The Table of Contents
• The Preface
•  Chapter One - Plane Crazy
•  Chapter Two - Fame And More Fame
•  The Index (with dummy text). The Index has not yet been completed.
•  About The Author

It’s actually more than we expected the publisher to reveal prior to the full book’s official release September 15, 2024. Let me know what you think.

Well, since you asked...  It's hard to say of course based on the two chapters that have been released.  They contain a  lot of background info that new readers will need to know, but most of us here will be fairly familiar with that already.  Based just on the TOC, I'm somewhat disappointed that it appears that only the last 45 pages are devoted to Tighar's Earhart Project.  I have no doubt that the preceding 288 pages will still be an interesting read and contain at least some new information for just about anybody, but I was looking forward to seeing more about the twists and turns of Tighar's research.  That said though, still count me in.  You know I'm Gardner-skeptic, but I've always said that one of your strengths has been that you are an excellent writer and story teller.  I always recalled a bit about AE from childhood (a long time ago), but Finding Amelia rekindled my interest and started me on the path of looking into her more seriously.  Can I still get an autographed copy of One More Good Flight when it comes out, or has that window passed?
I want to believe.

For an in-depth blow-by-blow account of TIGHAR's investigation see The Earhart Expeditions podcast series available wherever you get podcasts.
