"The Flying Greek . . . is that rare book tin aviation literature which manages to both thrill and inspire."--In Flight USA-- "In Flight USA" (6/26/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"The Flying Greek is an entertaining and remarkable journey that will interest historians and aviation enthusiasts."--Greek America Magazine--Walter Cronkite "Greek America Magazine" (5/28/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"The Flying Greek is an incredible autobiography, a fast-moving adventure that will hold the reader's attention to the end as Steve describes the episodes of his life as they happened. He is certainly a rare immigrant and a proud American whose story exemplifies what the goodness of America is all about. He is a role model for youngsters of our world today."--Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, USAF (Ret.)--Brig. Gen. Chuck Yeager, USAF (Ret.) "In Flight USA" (4/1/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"It's a fascinating tale of flying, and the opportunities offered in the United States to anyone enterprising enough to make the most of them. It also constitutes proof that Homer was not the last Greek who knew how to recount an odyssey."--Aviation History--Walter Cronkite "Aviation History" (9/3/2008 12:00:00 AM)
"Powered by the dream of flight, The Flying Greek is an epic journey of courage, risk, initiative, and perseverance. Pisanos tells his story of life, death, and brotherhood in the desperate battles in the skies over Europe in bold, colorful strokes. There are times when you find it difficult to grasp all those things that a human is capable of; Pisanos shows us all that is possible. The Flying Greek is the remarkable story of an individual who exemplifies everything America stands for and promises, and sets a standard for all generations to aspire to."--Gene Kranz, flight director of Apollo 13 and author of Failure is Not An Option: Mission Control From Mercury to Apollo 13 and Beyond--Gene Kranz "In Flight USA" (4/1/2008 12:00:00 AM)
