    Hi guys and gals,

    I've been writing a report on the 1999 book published by CNF entitled Never Stand Still , I'm sure some of you know the book and some of you, like it and I'm sure some of you don't care for the book.

    Personally it's chalk full of information, but it's a hard book to read and the book is sloppy with it's dates it jumps around way to much with it's dates, and it is a hard book to read and I think a lot people don't like it because it's just CF management patting them selves on the back.

    Anyhow, the book stops in 1999, but between 1999 and 2002 what was CF like and what eventually lead to there demise.

    Right now I'm in the early 1980's right when CF rolled out all the regional carriers and was trying to buy AEI Air Forwarding, because CF was in the air freight business for a little while. CF was like Union Carbide and had there hands in lots of things.

    Anyhow just interested in knowing what it was like at CF between 1999 and 2002 what was the company up to what was it like to work there so on and so fourth.

    Thanks guys
    Mike

    Mike, You may want to have your book proofread and edited. You're using 'chalk full of information' when you mean 'chock full of information.' No offense intended.

    Good luck!

    I just noticed that now sorry LOL! It's hard to be right all the time plus I use spell check my spelling and grammar have never really been that great, the problem is I tend to write like people talk, have you ever read Never Stand Still, it's not easy to read and the dates and stuff are hard to figure.
