Reviews

It is, unusually for a textbook, a good read, punctuated with anecdotes and a sense of humour. Above all, Ken reminds us that gliding is, and should always remain, fun. * Flyer magazine * Why do I recommend it? It is clear, concise, comprehensive, informative, and maybe will have saved my life * Vintage Glider Club *
