The book begins in a small town setting where aviation has earned a bad name because of an avoidable fatal crash. It is autobiographical only in the sense of the author's progression from non-interest to intense involvement in all aspects of flying. The title "Near Misses" describes close calls as well as choices that determined final outcomes. The highlights of an aspiring Naval Aviator's struggle to become a fighter pilot are revealed. Along the way, bits of historical and technical information are included The main theme is that anyone attempting the same task could benefit by either avoiding the pitfalls described or by being prepared to compensate for them in ways similar to those of the author.
