This book is an absolute delight. Its beauty lies in its simplicity. Using the metaphor of flight, it touches upon simple lessons that life teaches us. Squadron leader(retd) Manish Kumar narrates the story of a fresh trainee at the Air Force Academy and his journey through his training and his interaction with people, officers and civilians. Woven into each chapter of the book Be Your Own Pilot is a simple message.
In today’s hectic pace of life, where we often miss the woods for the trees, Squadron Leader Kumar’s book is a must read. It is nice without being preachy like many self-help books. In fact, ‘Be Your Own Pilot’ does not fit that genre at all. I finished the book in one sitting. It is simply unput-downable. I am sure you will find it too. So fasten your safety belts, complete your pre-flight checks and Happy Reading.
