By Dan Poynter VINE VOICE on October 15, 2002
Format: Paperback
There are three kinds of people: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened. Like many skydivers, Jac Flanders makes things happen.
Jac Flanders is a parachuting pioneer; hence the title: What I Learned on the Way Down. He was there in the beginning when the only skydiving was in isolated pockets on the East and West Coasts. He opened a parachute center in Michigan. He went on to take more risks-as a publicist. He worked with a lot of big names including his close friend Jerry Lewis.
This book is fun to read but there is a reason: Jac won an Emmy for his writing. This is a fine book by a fine skydiving celebrity.
As a skydiver (1,200 jumps, D-454), pilot (SEL & gliders, hang gliders and paragliders),author and publisher of seven books on parachutes and skydiving, I recommend this book to those interested in aviation and/or Hollywood celebrities.
--Dan Poynter, Parachuting, The Skydiver's Handbook.

Format: Paperback
I have to wonder if being Jerry Lewis' "Personal Assistant" also included 'Happy Endings' to each and every day. In his book, tantamount to a self-aggrandizing piece of -- uh -- 'work' with a misleading title, he certainly strikes me as the ultra-liberal starry eyed false idol worshiping type - with little to no conscience and definitely morally bankrupt -- who would do anything for approval, attention, kibbles, and bits from his master(s) and his ilk. Be it hardcore race-baiting dog whistles or just pure unadulterated loathing of anyone and everyone possessing morals, scruples, ethics, and a strong sense of personal and fiscal responsibility -- the very antithesis of limousine liberals such as Jac Flanders.

Jac Flanders absolutely hates the 'Right' -- Republicans and the 'Tea Party' -- and anyone and everyone else NOT firmly planted on the Liberal Plantation. And it shows -- even today.

Which, naturally, is a-typical of celebrity worshipers and those of even marginal talent, like Jac Flanders, who've made their fortunes in that den of sociopathic false idol reprobates -- Hollywood.

There is good reason why this book is #4,007,396 [that's Four-Million, Seven-Thousand, Three-Hundred, and Ninety-Six] on the Amazon list. And it's not just because this hackery is 11-years old [which -- coincidentally -- is also Jac Flanders' maturity quotient -- 11 -- as in 'years old'].

The detritus contained within the pages of this Jac Flanders' book resembles the gooey, scaly, putrid scum one might find under the toilet rim of the men's public bathroom in a Tijuana Hooters eatery.

Which, naturally once again, stands to reason given the Source.

Format: Paperback
Jac's book is like milk and cookies for the soul! Heartfelt, funny, and endearing stories that span from every day human experiences to mixing it up with the likes of Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin - it is a book about friendship and much more.
One of my favorites is "The Fantastic Four", a story about Jac's experiences as the "voice" of a cartoon character. Titled after the the magic words "Flame On" which transformed his average crime fighter character into a super hero, the story includes the very first script of this show.
"Ah well, Flame on" Jac!
