Pros: This book was a great resource to learn about soaring! Weather was a great subject through out the book as it goes further than simply the weather charts.

Pros: Gave this book as a gift to my girlfriend, she loves it. Very good introduction to the basics of soaring. Cons: There are sections that are very basic knowledge and for someone who already has a private pilot's license, will just be review. But review is never a bad thing! An excellent buy.
