what a guy-what a life-pushing the envelope. Defying authority somewhat-always daring to go the extra inch, the extra mile. Incredible read. Great for student and adults alike
This book, an autobiography of Yeager's life, was a fascinating look into the time in our history when the discovery and advancement of military technology, especially jet technology, was a national priority. Individuals during that time who tested new jet technologies were demigods, highly revered for their roles in national military supremacy and for the danger that they accepted as part of their jobs.
Forget that the man was the first to ever break the sound barrier. Read this book because it is a fascinating story about a man and the dangers of his life as he chased a dream that he shared with many!
Amazingly informative book!
My husband loved this book.
Chuck Yeager is considered the greatest test-pilot of them all. He was the first man to break the speed of sound. He engaged in do-or-die dogfights over Nazi Europe, was shot down over occupied France and managed to escape, unflinching in every hazardous situation. A man who truly had "the right stuff."
Here, in his own words, is a one-of-a-kind portrait of a true American hero.
What an awsome book. Chuck Yeager has led the life that men dream of. An incredible book.
