Item description for God Protects the Ignorant. Sometimes (The Memoirs of One Pilot's Journey - Missions in Vietnam, Iran, and on Rescue Missions) by Jim Stills...
Written in his own humorous, Southern voice, Jim Stills leads us through his funny, sad, and tragic adventures in Vietnam, Iran, and back to the U.S. where he continued as a helicopter pilot for Life Saver rescue missions. Jim's compassion for others is balanced by his ability to see the irony and divine hand of God at work in life. His stories are insightful, uplifting, and inspiring. War is indeed hell, but it also carries the hopes and spontaneous levity which flows from the human heart. These are the components of his stories.

If you are a pilot you will feel the tension and humor in this book. It is made up of a series of short stories about close calls and adventures. The stories make good subway, EL, bus, or bathroom material.
If you are not a pilot the stories are still very entertaining and worth the read but just how close the author has come to death and escaped will not be completely obvious.
