adventure seeker who s always thirsty for knowledge The secret of my success is that I always managedseeker who s always thirsty for knowledge The secret of my success is that I always managed live to fly another day says Chuck Throughout the book he constantly speaks about the art of staying safe while exploring the limits of man and the machine In Chuck s vocabulary Being careful while busting arse Being careful has a different meaning in Chuck s dictionary It just means being aware to him In his life Chuck Yeager accepted missions that many pilots refused to accept because of fear The reason for that is Chuck knew about the machines that he flew than anyone else He knew exactly about what they can do and what they can t do He also knew what to do to make them do what he wants to do He s the perfect aeroplane whisperer As a reader while reading these episodes of days as a test pilot we will realise the fact that nothing other than deep knowledge can propel a man towards success Sensible work yields than hard work Pages that tell the romantic story between Chuck Yeager and Glennis sound fantastic than most of the films and imaginary novels Why wouldn t it be because it s a story of a hero meeting an intelligent beauty and falling deeply in love with her perfect recipe for making butterflies flutter in the heart of the reader Chuck meets Glennis for the first time in a Gymnasium at Oroville Glennis was a 18 year old high school raduate working at the ym s office at that time and Chuck was a 19

That And I Liked Thatand I liked that The Right stuff and my little brother is in the AF so otta represent I really enjoyed this book but I must admit that the parts I enjoyed the most were not about Yeager they were about two extraordinary and uniue women in his life Pancho Barnes and Jackie Cochran I m wondering if there are biographies of them because I couldn t et enough I also found it interesting that while Yeager spoke so brilliantly about these two ladies and painted such a vivid picture of their uniue characters I walked away from this book feeling as though his wife Glennis was a stranger Even the parts that were in her voice from her writings and interviews etc left a colorless rendition of Yeager s longtime wife Sometimes the reading The Great Passage got a little too technical for the non aviator me and I couldn t keep any of the airplane acronyms straight I didn t really expect to but I enjoyed Yeager s bluntness and humor and he tells his stories with that typical Air Force swagger that makes you admire those pilots no matter what their faults are As soon as seeing the title of this book people might think that it s not their cup of tea Many who aren t interested in aeroplanes and engineering wouldn t know who Chuck Yeager is People who know about him don t know him well they think that he s just a man who enjoyed his life by flying expensive toys Many don t understand what a legend he is But for the ones who know him well he s beyond a happy and successful human He is a role model A hero A man who shed light upon the dark path that led the world to the future of aviation People who had escalated themselves to this level of importance would be special people So is General Chuck Yeager This book doesn t only make us realise how special he is It also makes us understand the making of someone special The book starts with the stories from Chuck s notorious childhood that puts a smile on the readers face while making a point that childhood is the most important part of anyone s life Chuck wasn t an easy child that most parents of today desire to have He was a real pain in arse But as we progress into reading about his adulthood and his early success stories we begin to realise the fact that the only reason for his swift success is the individualism sculptured.
