Mr. Mallick has done a superb job in giving his personal account of a career spanning the true golden age of flight test. He keeps the subject on task and writes in a very engaging style. The numerous photographs are welcomed throughout the narrative and he is very respectful of his colleagues, some of whom were very arrogant and would not own up to their own mistakes. He puts NASA and his experiences in a positive light. Very highly recommended for any airplane buffs.
