Canopy Obsessed Can't Post

So I am trying to learn everything there is to know about my canopy.... are there any cool books to read about canopies? I am definitely trying to learn by doing as much as possible... but I'd like to read about it as well.

Pick up The Parachute and its Pilot, it's worth its weight in gold.

a canopy control course would be a good idea as well! i've taken brian germain's and would highly reccomend it, and there are others available as well.
