This is a guest post by Lee.

I love Star Wars movies. I’ve seen them all, even the prequels that we didn’t want to watch. And when Han Solo talks to Obi-Wan Kenobi in “A New Hope”, his response is iconic and memorable. “Never tell me the odds” is an incredibly powerful phrase and philosophy that has since been popularized in all kinds of different ways, most notably by Han Solo. And as it turns out, a friend of mine just happens to be a famous author. His name is Lee Child, and he wrote “Jack Reacher”.
This guest post is dedicated to Jack Reacher because I think he’s the kick-assest fictional pilot who ever lived.
“Never tell me the odds.”
That’s about as much as I know about my friend Lee Child and his book series, Jack Reacher. I was recommended “A Wanted Man” by a buddy of mine who’d read it and loved it. I was curious, so I read it. The book turned out to be so popular and so widely read that it was made into a movie, a sequel the following year, and more recently a TV series.
