aerofan Posted April 13, 2016 Share Posted April 13, 2016 After being given his 1985 Autobiography written by himself and Leo Janos, I read from front cover to back and was truly impressed by his accomplishment given his limited academic background. His life is something that would not happen in this day because of his limited education. However, it shows back then that one's abilities was much more important and valued than your pedigree. Another thing I got from Yeager is how humble the guy is. He could have really cashed in, especially after "The Right Stuff", but didn't. After reading I thought if he never got the breaks and opportunities he did because of his limited academics, how many more months or years it would have taken finally break the sound barrier.
