Excellent tool for learning weather
The area on clouds, LLWS and thunderstorms are extremely informative and easy to understand. The entire book is geared for the layman as well as the experienced pilot. Glad I purchased this.

Pros: Reads fairly easy and is very informative. It has turned into a great little resource for my flight training. Cons: Pictures could use a little updating but we're talking about an FAA produced book. Pretty good little book. My flight instructor recommended it to me and so far so good.

Pros: Basic info that hasn'e changed over the years. Very good for firstimers in flying. Cons: Update the pictures so they are readable. The book looks like they took the old book and copied the hell out of it. This book is very old. I used it 30 years ago.

Pros: Good content, for the time at. Now seems so outdated that is uninviting to the reader. A new edition is warranted. Cons: See above No additional comments.
