Cons:
I was disapointed that the books I received for a gift for my son had been scuffed up a bit so it made them look worn on the outside. It would be best if they were in a plastic cover to protect them before purchase.

Not Recommended

Pros:
Can't thing of a single one.
Cons:
bad description of product.

Still scratching my head and trying to figure out why Sporty's billed this as a "must read for instrument pilots."

Typical gov't publication--cluttered, hard to read, bureaucrat-speak, and a lot of gibberish. If this is considered "essential" for either instrument pilots, or worse yet, instrument students, then we're going to begin seeing a lot more LSA and sport-pilot tickets and less IR tickets.

Yes, there is good information in the book, but it is so cluttered and crowded and gibberized that for a young, low-time instrument student, the book is all but useless.

It's a fair reference book, and that's about it.
