Designed for ground instructors, flight instructors, and aviation maintenance instructors, this Aviation Instructor’s Handbook was developed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in cooperation with aviation educators to help beginning instructors understand and apply the fundamentals of instruction. This handbook provides up-to-date information on learning and teaching, and how to relate this information to the task of teaching aeronautical knowledge and skills to students. Experienced aviation instructors will also find the information useful for improving their effectiveness in training activities.

Subjects covered include human behavior, the learning process, effective communication, the teaching process, assessments, planning instruction activity, instructor responsibilities, techniques of flight instruction, and risk management.

Pros:
If you want to achieve your CFI rating then this is the information you need (to rotely memorize)!


Cons:
The book is also full of abstract examples, many of which do not fit real world scenarious. I think if the FAA consulted real world CFI's when they updates rhis book it could have been much better.

Overall rating of 2 stars due to the fact that this book is guilty of exactly what the publications says not to do, which is rote memorization. It is recommended only because there is no other way around it.

This was useful for studying for the FOI written test but has also been a very handy reference now that I'm an instructor.
