Author: Carl Hershey. Reversing Thrust is the reflective story of its writer’s spiritual transformation into manhood, set in loosely scattered vignettes amidst the paralleling trip of his lifetime, while flying onboard the Concorde. It speaks clearly to the subject of fatherhood, using the author’s personal experience as illustration, comparing a child’s relationship with his or her biological father and the adult child’s later understanding and acceptance of the heavenly Father, or God.

Thrust reversal, also called reverse thrust, is the temporary diversion of an aircraft engine's thrust so that it acts against the forward travel of the aircraft, providing deceleration. Thrust reverser systems are featured on many jet aircraft to help slow down just after touch-down, reducing wear on the brakes and enabling shorter landing distances. Such devices affect the aircraft significantly and are considered important for safe operations by airlines.

Reverse thrust is used to slow down the aircraft on the runway after touchdown. Fairly often you see executive jets using reverse thrust during taxi, to reduce break usage whilst rolling down sloping taxiways. There are three main components which slow down the airplane on the runway: Primary Braking with disc or carbon brakes similar to your car Secondary with reverse thrust Thrid with aerodynamical braking with the ground spoilers So we have two words in reverse thrust.

The father-son bond and relationship is deeply and intensely explored in this psychological memoir: "Reversing Thrust.. A Backward Step Into Manhood" authored by Carl Hershey. Hershey writes about how the death of his mother when he was 16 years old impacted his life leading to years of estrangement from his uncaring, distant, physically and emotionally unavailable father. His father remarried after Hershey's mother died. There was a noticeable absence of interactions and connections with other people in this story, although Hershey writes candidly of his inner emotional consciousness and mental breakdown it took several pages to perhaps understand what he may have been trying to say.

There was a metaphoric illustration comparison of his life to his October 7, 2000 flight on the Concorde: the supersonic travel that broke the sound barrier a 1,380 mph. Hershey identified this as a "realm" of travel and spiritual journey that defined his life. Fortunately, he was able to connect with his favorite uncle Jerry and his wife who invited Hershey to discuss his problems and concerns with him following a family Christmas gathering in 1995. Hershey was also driver for UPS and experienced a panic attack while he was driving the truck on the freeway during the Christmas rush. During this period of his life, Hershey described himself as guarded which made him feel protected and in control of his life. Wary of others and suspicious of their intent, he was unable to trust others, or form close relationships that may have led to marriage and family life.

It was good Hershey was able to fully explore his problems related to feeling unloved and unwanted by his father, he developed a spiritual substitution and connection "to his heavenly father" that enriched his life and strengthened his faith. Later, he took some time off to write full time. Still, the lack of others sharing his life made this an unusual and slightly unsettling read. Many thanks to the author for the e-ARC for the purpose of review. ~ 3* GOOD.

While it took courage to write such a brutally honest story, I kept thinking about this man's father. How convenient for the author to have one person on which to pin all of his problems, and how sad for the father to have no way to defend himself. Mostly I thought this book to be one long whining session with no real value to the reader.

Is is rare that a man will openly discuss the subject of intimacy; and even more rare that he will openly discuss his personal struggles and fears of intimacy. This book is rare, indeed; as a successful young man approaches his father, to find and confront the underlying source of his incredible struggle, fear, and pain. I was mesmarized by the work of this first time author, and the simplicity and intelligence of his writing. The story was personally engaging, vivid, and real. I say, "Get this book into the hands of every man--and woman--in America!" They will read it.

Carl Hershey first published this memoir in 2004 and after reading it, it is surprising that it hasn't become more popular among readers. Perhaps some readers are unable to cope with the religious overlay of his writing - but that of itself is a shame: if more people would carefully read Carl's spiritual awakening there would likely be a renaissance in spiritual values.

Carl was born and raised in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in a Mennonite household (because there is some confusion about the term, the resources say `Amish Mennonites came into existence through reform movements among American Amish churches in the late 19th and early 20th century. The Amish churches had originated in the late 17th century through Oberländer converts to the Swiss Brethren/Mennonite churches of Southern Germany, eastern France, and Switzerland.) Despite the confusion it should be noted that Mennonite families are usually farmers, passing along the farm to sons. In Carl's case, his father was a distant, unapproachable cold man and therein lies the story. His mother whom he loved dearly died when he was a teenager and her death was a catastrophe for Carl. The fact that his father remarried after his mother's death placed more distance between father and son and indeed his family unit all but disintegrated. The topic of this `backward step into manhood' is how this `emotionally deserted' lad grew into the understanding of his past and begin to live life is the essence of this book.

Carl wisely places his book on board a flight on a Concorde to London, a fine analogy about taking flight from past hurt, inability to achieve intimacy, and a re-alignment with his relationship with is father - the core of that being his absorption in understanding the father role of God and how that allowed him to emerge form a long period of pain to a stage of enlightenment. `Why after thirty-two years was I finally able to see it? I do not know. But I carried the defect, too. It was part of who I was, and I wanted it extracted out of me. I wanted no part of it, this lie of secrecy, the sin of the fathers', and I would not pass it on to my children. Thus, I needed to terminate it within my own life, which required me to break the sound barrier of my own fear to expose the sins fathers are committing against their own children unawares and without regard.....I feel the obligatory need to emphasize the spiritual significance fathers carry in the lives of their children, and to prove my experiences above and beyond conceptual theory or that of the imagined. I feel the need to personalize God, making his presence tangible and known in spirit, in the central parts of our being....'

These are words from a man who has truly become an adult male through struggle, out of isolation, into the happiness of living in this world. It is moving, it is significant, and it is a gift. Grady Harp, January 15
