“I formally declare this ‘The Mother of All Reference Books’. If you can’t find it here, you probably don’t need to know it!”
- Dan Mulder, AirTran
“This book will turn virtually any pilot into an aviation guru! It truly does cover every real world aviation topic in excruciating detail and - more importantly - it does it in a uniquely easy to read, fun, and easy to understand manner using PLAIN ENGLISH. It actually makes it fun to look up a subject because you don’t have to wade through mountains of legal gibberish to get to the bottom line.”
- Vinnie Criscuola, US Airways
“…I keep searching for a subject that is not completely covered… I give up!”
- Joe Parks, NetJets
“The most valuable book in my library. I wish it had been available years ago. It would have saved me countless hours of research / study time and hundreds of dollars wasted on other books.”
- Andre Missfeldt, AirTran
"Richie has an extremely readable style. Words highlighted with bold / underlined text make it possible to retrieve all the relevant facts from a page in just a few seconds, rather than having to sift through numerous muddled paragraphs of boring print. This groundbreaking style is a great time saver. I also love the imbedded humor."
- Mark Wainscott, DHL
"At last, an extremely detailed analysis of aviation covering all the bases from props to jets. If you’re a Private pilot or an Airline pilot you MUST have this book. Richie seems to know exactly what you’re looking for… then immediately hands it to you on a silver platter. I feel like I’ve suddenly become an aviation scholar (as long as my copy of ‘THE BOOK’ is close at hand)."
- Rob Fergus, Flight Options
“An unbelievable amount of information crammed into one book. I think it could more accurately be called ‘The World Encyclopedia of Aviation in Plain English’.”
- Gus Alvarez, Embry Riddle
"Where was this book when I needed it? It would have saved me countless of hours of study time in preparation for my first type rating. An enormous collection of information and pearls of wisdom that I will have to admit, pretty much covers EVERYTHING for just about every pilot."
- Chris Royals, Shuttle America
