    Excellent book. I fly for a major airline in the U.S. and I have a few airplanes under my belt, and I wish I’d had a book like this for those other aircraft. Of course, jokingly, I’d hate to be held accountable for all the information that’s in this book, come check-ride time :) The latest interactive pages are very interesting and helpful — great to be able to see the resulting inner actions of throwing a switch. The videos are great, too. Seeing the flight control pulleys and cables whirring away inside the wheel-well is very cool. There’s a lot in this book; just yesterday after updating to the latest version, I found the engine-start malfunction videos. How great to be able to watch the engine indications in real-time of all the different engine non-normals? If you’re on this airplane or about to train on it, you’ve gotta have this book. Honestly, it’d be foolish to not have it, and the price is certainly worth it. Moreover, the author is very receptive to reader input; I mentioned the benefit of adding imperial units for us non-metric folks and, after the next update….voila, there they were. Get this book…you’ll enjoy it.
