A hilarious account of the the things airmen could get away with before computer systems and multi-level teamwork took over flying. No bush pilot I knew dared even a tiny fraction of it, despite us being privileged to be outside of supervision in Canada's north almost to the present day. Told with real style by Janos who intersperses sections by others whenever Yeager himself seems to be getting away with too much for belief. Some of the most touching passages describe Yeager's friendship with two equally outrageous early women aviators, one who married a millionaire and kept flying, the other who opened a whorehouse next to the major Air Force testing range.
