Pros: Good practical discussion on the practical physics of why a taildragger is different the a nosewheel. The book does a good job of explaining the how and why. The book also contains flight reviews of some 15+ aircraft, though most are Australian. Cons: There are noticably more than a few sections of the book that are redundantly repetative... get my point? Good read as a review, or for someone who is considering getting their tailwheel endorsement.

Pros: Very comprehensive. Also covers areas of learning to fly not unique to tail staggers. His choice of individual airplanes to review is interesting but only the Cessna 185 is recognizable
