Brig. Pessie Madan is one of our outstanding electronics engineers whom I have had the intense and lasting pleasure to have known for more than thirty years. I commend this book by him, most aptly titled An Odyssey, to the widest reading public and, more importantly, perhaps Pessie's grand children's generation. The older of them, will say, after reading this 'Here was a remarkable man'.
