Review


"I am absolutely blown away by this book.... I cannot express enough how fantastic of a read this was. You are an incredible writer!!!! I loved the overall analogy of the flying vs. life (business, relationships, etc.) and also all of the anecdotes and stories along the way."

 ~ Melissa Jurcan, CSEP Publicist andEvent Manager

"Fumes and a Prayer is a book that works on many different levels. I wasinspired by the personal stories and captivated by his true story of survivaland determination. This book is written in a warm, conversational style thatmakes it seem like you're sitting in the living room listening to a greatstoryteller. A combination adventure story, self-help book, and treatise on howto live life without fear, Fumes and a Prayer is a book that everyone will beable to relate to and enjoy." ~ Wayne Osborn, librarian

 _____________

"Dennis Bauer instantly connects with the reader with his candid accountsthat are not unlike our own... Who hasn't had to (metaphorically) land a planewith nothing more than fumes and a prayer? This is a great read, and a mustread for anyone who sometimes feels like making it home for dinner seems justout of reach." ~Rebecca R, writer, photographer
