Format: Paperback
I was hoping for more airplanes. They only have around 10 in the whole book. Half of the book is telling how planes fly and the best way to fly the planes in the book. If you are looking for a teaching aid then it's probably a good book. If you are just interested in folding paper airplanes, then it might not be the best book for you, but it does have a couple of planes that I had never seen before.

As a father of a 9 and 7 year old, I knew it was just a matter of time before I would be called upon to make a paper plane. If you're like me, you'll need this book.

The book gives step-by-step instructions which my children easily understood. It also gave theory, suggestions, and hints which helped me to make the more complicated planes.

This is a good one for you or your kids.

Format: Paperback
The author, Edmond Hui is a former hang gliding instructor, so he brings his expertise to the reader in his book about flying paper airplanes. He points out that almost anyone can make a paper airplane, but that the more you put into them, the better they will fly. I guess that's true about anything. He provides general instructions for crafting paper airplanes, and then takes the hobbyist to more advanced levels. Illustrations are in black and white but are quite detailed yet simple. He illustrates the concepts required for flight, and then provides the reader with more detailed projects. For anyone into paper airplanes, this book is a definite asset.
