John Raymond Takacs “is an inventor, adventurer and avid outdoor enthusiast. He served with the 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam and was awarded a purple heart for injuries received in combat. He resides on the west slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. John Raymond Takacs is the author of the The Take-Us.

According to the book description of The Take-Us, “John Christenson, a man with an idea, modifies an automobile so that it can run without gasoline--instead, it generates its own motive power as it travels down the road. His invention could quickly and profoundly change the world's power structures by ending U.S. enslavement to oil. John's plan, developed with the help of a beautiful TV reporter, Leena Delaney, is to drive the auto from New York City to San Francisco without using gasoline, and broadcast the trip on live national television.


The plan is simple but difficult to finish in a world where the value of life is nothing compared to the billions of dollars of income from oil that will be lost if John and Leena have a successful trip. Countries and corporations alike try to kill John and Leena and destroy their amazing auto. With danger threatening them from all sides, John and Leena fight their way through almost constant ambushes as they fall more deeply in love in this fast-paced story that concludes in San Francisco with an explosive and unexpected finish.”
