If you fly or know someone who does -- buy this book! You may literally save their lives some day. It's a steal for a hard cover volume and it's one of the best texts on stick & rudder flying I've ever read. I'm an Air Force Academy grad with a degree in Astronautical Engineering. I know all the equations of flight and have tested wings in a lab. I was also a Jet Instructor Pilot for several years and also have a small out of Cessna 172 time (I just didn't enjoy props). Been out of flying for 30 years.
I then took a ride in a glider and fell in love with soaring! You hardly use the rudder in normal jet flying so I had a lot to "re-learn" about how important it is in light aircraft. One of my glider instructor's recommended this book. I was skeptical, but quickly fell in love with it. It was written many years ago and the old wording and line drawings just added to my interest. You won't find any equations or graphs -- but sound words from a pilot who knows how to fly.
