Brian Settles was an experienced airline pilot, well educated, and a single parent that seemed to have it all: freedom, income, and a great career until an airline strike and bankruptcy shattered his existence. Readers will get an amazing account of his journey from airline pilot to taxicab driver and back. You will ride in his backseat and experience the daily grind of the taxicab driver's life. Settles will struggle to regain airline employment, enduring three years of upheaval, uncertainty, and danger on the streets of Atlanta, Georgia.

The writer poignantly infuses the wrenching parental desperation he felt, alone and isolated, as he braced against the headwinds of financial chaos, buoyed by fatherly love. He raised two sons with unceasing determination to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. The author's trial of perseverance led him to triumph and taught him valuable life lessons about people and himself. This former Vietnam combat pilot fought his way through employment disaster and back to the cockpit as an airline pilot. Brian Settles' story is a riveting testimony of fortitude, invincibility, and God's favor to defeat overwhelming adversity, an unvanquished single parent, refusing to surrender to failure--a fascinating and inspiring read.
