    Great book, worth every penny!

    Glad to see the updated Third Edition of this classic book. I was a bit distressed at the obviously-contrived political correctness inserted by the editors, with every-other chapter switching between gender-specific personal pronouns. It looks pretty silly. Otherwise, the book is an excellent choice for new pilots wondering what to do next.
