More About the Author

Though, I was born with the name Jeffrey Wayne Griffin and I care not one iota for that name, at least the Jeffrey Wayne part. I go by J. Griff Griffin these days after being called Capt. Griff for 31 years in the airline business. I like it that way.

So, after retiring medically from piloting in 2006, I began to pursue all my artistic interests. Many have called me a "Renaissance Man" because I produce so many things with success. I am an artist (http://Paintography.tv), a musician since I was 11 years old (When the Starships Fly.com) and all the books that you find on Amazon from my former publishers of aviation books. Those can be found under Jeff W. Griffin as author.

In the last two weeks I have published my first two books on Amazon Kindle. I'm excited because what you will learn in these books is of the utmost importance to all of us. In a general sense, it's about how to change our internal self talk. Self talk occurs whether what we say to ourselves are winning phrases or losing phrases. The point is, we might as well say winning ideas to ourselves. The book goes on to explain how the unseen world turns what we think into a million positive results that we could have already had, if we had said them to ourselves. From my viewpoint of being a Certified Hypnotherapist, I realize suggestions applied to an open subconscious mind bring a lot of power and thus results to how we experience this life.

My first Kindle book is about how to do digital art. I have a website that is chocked full of my digital art and I have buyers from all over the world. On any one day they come to me from as far away as Singapore and all of Europe. Checkout "How to Make Your Own Digital Artwork" on the Kindle platform. Also see my art at http://paintography.tv

There is also new music in the pipeline and I have musician friends around the USA that I collaborate with often on their music and they with mine. We have a great time and make great music together just like the 60s and 70s when we were band mates in "Mourning Sun."

Look for my new website Griffin Creative.co (not .com but .co)
for the latest in what is coming from our creative foundry. I stay busy and my goal is to keep as many self-help books in the pipeline as I can create.

Thanks for your time to visit to this bio.

J. Griff Griffin

This book has some interesting information, but it is WAY outdated. A lot of the information isn't accurate any more. It paints an extremely rosy picture of the airline industry. Of couse, anybody who's interested in an aviation career now knows that the industry is in the toliet and it's a pretty tough career to get into. If you can get it used here for a buck like I did, go for it, it's somewhat useful, but I certainly wouldn' buy it new.

Great overview for those breaking into the profession. Unfortunately, like all of the "how to be a pilot" books it leaves the reader with a false sense of optimism regarding flying and the state of the industry. The reality is that a flight career can be plagued with furloughs, student debt, and uncertainty, just as with great success. Any person planning to break in to aviation needs to understand this fact and also have a backup plan if not backup budget in mine.

gives a little info on the career path, not much new info for someone in the business already. talks about job outlook: extremely outdated! Eastern Airlines? Good book for someone young but keep researching through other books. I don't regret buying it.

the author is a respectable ATP pilot. The lesson is taught in a logical and humorous way.
However the book is kinda of outdated due to year of publishment...
Maybe the new version is better.
