General Chuck Yeager was the greatest test pilot of them all--the first man to fly faster than the speed of sound . . . the World War II flying ace who shot down a Messerschmitt jet with a prop-driven P-51 Mustang . . . the hero who defined a certain quality that all hotshot fly-boys of the postwar era aimed to achieve: the right stuff. Now Chuck Yeager tells his whole incredible life story with the same "wide-open, full throttle" approach that has marked his astonishing career.  What it was really like enaging in do-or-die dogfights over Nazi Europe.  How after being shot over occupied France, Yeager somehow managed to escape.  The amazing behind-the-scenes story of smashing the sound barrier despite cracked ribs from a riding accident days before. The entire story is here, in Yeager's own words, and in wondeful insights from his wife and those friends and colleagues who have known him best.  It is the personal and public story of a man who settled for nothing less than excellence, a one-of-a-kind portrait of a true American hero.… (mere)

I've had this book for 14 years and it was only when I heard an old interview of Chuck Yeager that I was inspired to read his autobiography. And worth it. The first few chapters, relating his youth, are mildly entertaining in being filled with all the childish and adolescent pranks that he could remember. But when he learns to fly, that's when the story gets interesting: dog-fighting, the sound barrier, the age of jets, then the age of rockets; WW 2, Korean War, Pakistan vs. India, Russian MiGs. His life is filled with danger...and luck. One real trick of the authors was to interspersed book with the recollections of his wife, friends, comrades, superiors--along with some biographies of his close friends, adding texture to his life by showing who he loved and was loved by, and how they intermingled. The autobiography, is not "gripping" as such...but it does have some very gripping moments--and some nice insights into Russian aviation vs USA. It's an easy and entertaining read. ( )

קריאה טובה. ביחוד עבורי. אני מכיר כל מטוס וכמעט על טייס שמוזכר בו. צפוי מאוד ופשטני מאוד. טיסה, טיסה ועד טיסה. לקראת הסוף נעשה קצת מייגע כי בסה"כ אין לבן אדם הרבה מה לומר. ( )
