This is my new favorite book hands down. This book delivers unparalleled insight into the process and training to becoming a fighter pilot.

This is a must read for anyone looking for an unfiltered and honest step by step guide on how to go from citizen to combat ready fighter pilot.
- James L. (Amazon Review)
This terrific read follows one man's journey from college student to the cockpit of the world's most technically advanced fighter. The author's reflections and "lessons learned" are fascinating. The topic is extraordinarily technical, but the book is very understandable and provides a look at the amazing competence of today's fighter pilots.
- Chris A. (Amazon Review)
This book truly captures the essence of what it's like to be a fighter pilot. Sure, you see the glamor in the news, on tv, in newspapers, and in magazines, but you don't usually read about what it takes to get there, and what trials and tribulations a person goes through to achieve that goal. Not only is this story is like a biography for a certain time period in this man's life, but also provides very key lessons on what to do, what not to do, and what to expect on this journey.
For the layman, you get an understanding or insight into the lingo or jargon the pilots use, the atmosphere they live in, what they do at "work", and what the life everyday is for a beginning pilot who is aspiring to get to his goal of flying raptors for the United States.
