Right place at the right time. That is the story of Chuck Yeager's life. This book is very well written and will be difficult to put down once you start reading. A good auto biography is one in which you can hear the voice of the author in your head as you read. Clearly you can hear Chuckie and quickly you will be amazed at his simplicity and yet a type of genious that never gets full recognition for well earned accomplishments. In other words, Forrest Gump the fighter pilot.
The only thing that I see missing in this book are the voices of his children. I am curious to know what they think of a father that they probably spent almost no time with.
