I did not know exactly what to expect when I bought this book, but I had heard of it from many sources so thought I would give it a try. This is absolutely not a technical book about how to fly IFR, but is a very useful and practical book about really flying IFR. It contains a lot of information and insights, some new and many I had heard before, that are presented in a way that really connected them and made them relatable to my flying. I have really enjoyed reading this book and will definitely recommended to friends!
