Great for a new skydiver 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Hvance, 2010-07-22

Just finished this book, and I definitely recommend it to any newer skydiver. I learned a ton, and it's actually a very quick read.


Great read to get yourself started! 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: debussyschild, 2008-09-28

I'm a beginner with not one jump under my belt as of the time of this review (but that will change this coming weekend!!) and I found to book to be extremely helpful and informative. The best part is the description of the sport canopy with all of the components labeled in a diagram. The chute is a difficult but probably the most important part of sky diving with which one must to become THOROUGHLY acquainted. This book helps a lot with that to get yourself a rough idea before you begin your actual AFF in-field training.


Great for a headstart and reference 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: denete, 2007-04-08

I read the book, and then showed up for my AFF coursework. That night, the guys thought I was lying about never having jumped before. It is fairly complete and definitely a must-have for the reference shelf.
