Format: Paperback
Charles A. Lindbergh, first person to fly the Atlantic alone, is a fascinating character. This book, written at the end of his life, is a glimpse in the fertile mind of a great man. He tells the story of being one of the first modern media celebrities, an unsought burden. We also follow him through his careers as a pilot in World War II and as a medical researcher.
The real appeal of this book is not the facts of Lindbergh's life, amazing and interesting as they are. The true privilege for the reader is to hear Lindbergh ruminate on the nature of life and spirituality, the ways to remain sane and centered in modern society, and what it means to be an individual while part of a team.
Lindbergh emerges from this memoir as a deep and warm human, one whose passage through this plane touched so many in a positive way.

Insight into a remarkable individual July 5 2014
By A. Longo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book, Charles Lindbergh gives an account of his youth and the principles which guided him into adult life. He goes on to give an account of his aviation career. He explains how his travels broaden his viewpoint and intrigued him. He discusses how he met Ann Morrow and how she participated with him in his travels. He discusses his travels prior to and after World War II and gives insights into the current political thinking of the times. Also included are insights into how the US government functioned during those times, and unfortunately how the press treated Lindbergh and his family throughout his life.

A Blend of History, Memoir, and Metaphysical Musings March 27 2006
By Richard Salva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an extraordinary and unusual book, and certainly not what one would expect from the first man to fly the Atlantic alone.

Lindbergh (ever the trailblazer) sets the tone for the future otherworldly musings of astronauts. There must be something about the experience of flight-or of pioneering flight in particular-that sets fire to the spirit and imagination of man.

In Autobiography of Values, Lindbergh freely blends history, memoir, and metaphysical musings. Here we see what was hinted at in Of Flight & Life and parts of The Spirit of St. Louis, given free rein. Reading his mind-expanding phrases, and the extraordinary spiritual experiences during his famous Paris flight (mentioned three times), one sees how a yoga master (Yogananda) could have said that Lindbergh had been a Himalayan yogi in a past life (although this book was written decades after that statement).

Lindbergh was a private person; yet it seems to me that in this book he let the veil slip a little. Perhaps it was because his death was approaching that the flyer felt free to share some of his deepest thoughts.

I recommend this book to spiritual wayfarers and aviation buffs, and to those who fall somewhere between.

Charles Lindbergh gets philosophical about war in this book. In particular the detachment that pilots have with the effects on the ground from their bombing. My uncle flew with them in the Philippines, that is why I bought this book.

A great insight to a true hero. You can almost see though his eyes on his feelings the up and the lowest of downs and the country he loved almost turned it's back on him, because he didn't agree with one mans opinion
