"Just a note to say thanks for the thermal Flying book - it is actually the best flying book I have ever come across - I think the best thing is that it has some quite advanced stuff, but is still written in quite simple language which is perfect for simple people like me! All the other more advanced books are really 'dry' and I generally fall asleep by page 3! And the pictures are really good too. I like pictures. I will be recommending it to absolutely everyone."
