TR-Jack Ryan Book on Jeep engines?

I was flipping throughold posts I'd printed and ran across a reply from TR about a new book by Jack Ryan due out. The post was about a year ago. Anybody know anything about it? I checked with Books-A-Million and Amazon and they don't list any books by Jack. In other words-they don't know Jack!! Could he have been a John? No pun or disrespect intended.
Thanks,
Jackie

Yep - Jack Ryan is the character in the Tom Clancy books. Clancy's Jack Ryan release last summer was entitled The Bear and the Dragon. Here's the link to the book <a target="_blank" href=http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?userid=0DD77X0TWA&amp;isbn=0425180 964>http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?userid=0DD77X0TWA&amp;isbn=0425180 964</a>

Clancy's newest book just came out. It's called Red Rabbit and tells Jack Ryan's story before he joined the CIA. I bought it, but am reading 4 other books right now and am saving it for the rain.

I've triple checked the post and TR did write Jack Ryan as author of a new book on jeep engines. Come on TR-jump in here and set us straight.

Re: TR-Jack Ryan Book on Jeep engines?

He replied to my email about a week or so back. He's been REAL busy, something like being home only a few days in weeks. In fact he was on his way to a flight when he emailed.

It's good to be busy, anybody hear about the Consolidated Freight and Peterbilt layoffs? They just locked the doors! Man that's rough.
