    Is probably better than reviews, but since I can't get FSX to work can't really tell.

    Cons

    I bought this book by mistake, but decided to keep it as a setup guide for FSX. Big mistake. FSX experience has been bad. Very slow compared to FS9, my Saitek yoke doesn't consistently work, and the rudder pedals and radio don't work at all (all worked in FS9) Since this CD, which is really why I kept the book, doesn't work with FS9, and no one can help me get FSX fixed, it looks like it was a big mistake. Not really the book's fault though.
