VI E TNAM TO W E STERN AI RLINES B y B r u c e C o w e e THE MASTER’S MASTER By Grand Master Bill Jones With nearly 50 years' experience in a variety of martial arts styles and having taught for nearly 40 years, Grand Master Bill Jones is a 17 time world champion. He has held the "Competitor of the Year" award nine times, is a Grandmaster and 9th degree Black Belt, and holds three Masters' Degrees and eight different Black Belts. Despite all of his accomplishments however, the true tests for Jones weren't about martial arts at all--they came by way of his life and death struggles with major illness and personal loss. In his first book, The Master's Master: My Personal Journey with God, Grand Master Bill Jones tells of his first hand experiences and conversations with God, and how his life, both physically and spiritually, was saved and directed by the true "Master" of all creation-- God himself. This oral history of the air war in Vietnam includes the stories of more than thirty pilots who all had one thing in common-after returning from Southeast Asia and separating from the service, they were hired as pilots by Western Airlines. Each of the pilots featured in this book is the real thing. The stories span a 9 year period, 1964 - 1973, and cover every aspect of the Air War in Southeast Asia. These 33 men represent only a small fraction of the Vietnam veterans hired as pilots by Western Airlines, but this book pays tribute to all of them. AL IV E & CH IL LI N’ By Michael S. Copeland CU P OF JOY By Chris to phe r Georgeovich In this, his second book, ALIVE & Chillin': More Sideways Views and Do You Know Whos, ALIVE Magazine humor columnist Michael S. Copeland brings us not only not only his unique, side-splitting perspective on life, but also a collection of “serious” pieces about his encounters with some extraordinary people—all of whom have done, or are still doing, extraordinary things. Like his first book, ALIVE & Kickin’, this one will have you laughing early on…only this time, you’ll add a liberal dose of “wow,” “amazing,” and “incredible” to your critique. The art of playing golf entails a discipline between men or women and the realm of physics, all on a manicured field; it is filled with emotional, physiological, psychological and physical hazards, but... it can also be the greatest joy! In Cup of Joy, by Christopher Georgeovich, you will learn why the author claims that "the art of golf... is not to be played with!"
