This books is very well presented. Whilst you can get it free of charge from the FAA I like having the book to read from, and it would cost more to print the whole thing in color. I look forward to working my way through the book as my training progresses.

Great information. I bought the series to gain more knowledge about planes. This book is geared to future mechanics and goes into much detail. I enjoyed learning of the little details that go into pane design. Good series of books!
