"Just a note to say thanks for the Thermal Flying book – it is the best flying book I have ever come across. I think the best thing is that it has some quite advanced stuff, but is still written in quite simple language which is perfect for simple people like me! All the other more advanced books are really dry and I generally fall asleep by page 3! And the pictures are really good too. I will be recommending it to absolutely everyone."

"Definitely great reading for all levels."

For transparency, it's worth noting that Thermal Flying does include a few typos, but this doesn't affect the reading of it. The original edition was a worldwide bestseller.
