    Unsure if anyone has posted this before, I did a search and nothing turned up here. I read these a few years ago and just happened to find the link to the webpage again today. A fun read, any Ag Pilots that have been in it awhile should find it interesting. I know a couple of the chapters had me laughing out loud.

    Yep. That's going to take a while.

    But it does look like an interesting read.

    I've read it. Here is my review:

    This is one of the most skillfully written books I've ever read. It manages to be down to earth, yet symbolic, allegorical, and gives the feeling that it is dealing with the subject that is beyond all human understanding. The prose is beautiful, the pacing is flawless, and the content as sharp as a knife blade.

    I've read practically ever book on aviation that has received even the slightest recommendation -- perhaps more than 300 books. This is the best.

    I've read many other books on other subjects. This ranks as one of the great ones.
