Chesley Burnett "Sully" Sullenberger III, the pilot who saved the lives of all 155 souls on board USAir Flight 1549, by making an emergency water landing on the Hudson River, has sold his memoirs.
The two-book package was bought at auction by William Morrow. Reports of the amount of the advance vary between $2.5 million and $3.2 million. Nice!
One just has to wonder about the second book. What can it be? According to rumor, it is a collection of inspirational poetry.
