One big thing has changed in the wake of the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Terrorists intent on taking over commercial airliners had better be prepared for a hair-pulling, screaming, kicking, multi-passenger set-to. We've all reassured ourselves that we would fight in that type of situation, but exactly what should we do if we're sitting wedged between two other pax and someone pulls out a weapon? Authors Mark H. Bogosian, Michael K. Regan and Tommy L. Hamilton tell you in a new book entitled, "Never Again: A Self-Defense Guide for the Flying Public." The book was assembled in 2002 for consideration as a federal cockpit- and cabin-defense manual, and goes through a number of easy-to-follow self-defense tactics and techniques. Though the book is drawing kudos from airline pilots and members of law enforcement, one blog critic says the book that claims it "just may save your life one day" instead manages to just "scare the s**t out of anyone who reads it." We'll let you be the judge, but it's hard to imagine anything scarier than what happened on 9/11.
