A month later Ryanair announces increased passenger traffic for October, year-on-year growth and increased profits. Its share price soars. But questions remain about the causes of the debacle and O'Leary's role in it. Based on extensive research--including with close associates of O'Leary--the book examines O'Leary's personality, beliefs and obsessions and describes how these have moulded the business he runs.
