This book covers it all.
Very well written. A lot of photos, illustrations, charts, graphs, etc. There is a lot of information to know to fly safely and competently. This book is thorough and covers it all.

Pros: Logical and organized. Information explained well Cons: Nuttin All the reviews I read with dislikes all whined about the 'cheesy humor.' I've spent my adult life reading textbooks and material that was so complex that you get lost in the esoteric drivel. I found Mr Machado's book a light hearted source of information presented in an orderly, very organized and illustrated fashion. His anecdotes are germane and funny. Lets face it, some of the necessary knowledge required to obtain a license and pass tests can be confusing. If its presented in a humorous manner it will 'stick.' Particularly as we get older and the naps come more frequently

Pros: everything i have read i have been able to interpret and understand. not always easy but it does get the point across and everything i have read i have been increasing my knowledge of private pilot procedures and expectations .a person can go back and review. the illustrations go well with the reading because it helps one understand alot better. Cons: none very good....i dont think i have been bored at all with any of the teachings. i grasp some knowledge with all i have read. makes one anxious to get in a plane and experience it in real time and use the knowledge.
