5.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in those who gave a bad review, January 26, 2013
By 
This review is from: Becoming a Fighter Pilot in 2011 and Beyond, 1st Edition (Paperback)
I find it incredibly disappointing that members of my husband's community have taken the time to publicly insult one of his students. My husband was not too impressed when he heard about this book, nor did he have pleasant things to say about what he read. I hope that he will be the better person though, and not torment this guy as am I sure so many others plan. The author praising himself in this book doesn't make him look like half the douche that all these reviewers look like for trying to humiliate him by negatively reviewing his book. If you don't like what he did, keep your crappy comments in the ready room. It should be beneath all of our officers to act like such jerks on a public forum.

I am her husband and an instructor in the squadron that Anderson is in. My wife and I do not completely agree on this whole matter but we respect each others opinion, unlike many people on here. While I think he deserves a little mockery FACE TO FACE for writing this book and titling it what he did, I am a little suprised and dissapointed by the, at times, totally unprofessional posts on here. He has worked hard so far in the program and has shown the utmost respect for IPs and the proccess. This mistake he made a couple years ago will stick with him for a while but I believe he will make a good fleet aviator.
As for your remarks on my wife; you dishonor whichever service you fly for and clearly have some character issues of your own to work on. It is sad that people feel so comfortable writing whatever on the internet, but would probably never say such things face to face.

Here's my problem with this (I'm an FRS F-18 IP). You can't claim to write a book about becoming a fighter pilot without actually going through the whole process. Majority of SNA's going through flight school do not become fighter pilots. Now I haven't written anything negative about this guy, but I certainly question what could have possibly been going through his mind when deciding to write/publish this. Good day.

Jeez lighten up. He'll ultimately be judged by his flying ability but savage mockery is our nature. We've all been on the receiving end of it. The public nature of this mockery is a result of the public nature of the mistake. If he does well in tracom and in the rag he'll become a valued member of a ready room regardless of this stuff. If he can't take the mockery then he'll have a hard time getting savaged in a debrief after a rough flight.
