Format: Paperback
This book is for the renter as well as owner. Written a style similar to the owners manual you get with your car rather than the somewhat dry text of the Pilots Operating Handbook. It is not a substitute for the POH! I did not give it a full 5 stars because it only covers the 1977 onward models. If you are flying anything earlier than a Model N or one of the more "exotic" versions of the Skyhawk, this book will be of limited value.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers the 172 model years 1977-1985, and talks about how production ended in 1985 with the model P. The 172 lives on, of course, and if you happen to be flying one that's less than 20 years old this book misses the mark. In trying to cover so many models, it is necessarily vague and non-committal on many items. The book also inexplicably uses a Piper weight and balance chart as an example instead of a Cessna one. If you're a pilot... or planning to become one... there's nothing here that you won't find in more clarity and detail in the Pilot's Operating Handbook (POH) for the model 172 you're planning to fly. I'd pass on this book.

The ASA Cessna 172 Reference Book offers little in the way of new information. It's more of a rehash of The Pilot's Operating Handbook, written in more layman's terms and with perhaps a little more detail. Nothing to get excited about.

Format: Paperback
I find this a usefull handbook. It is limited to the 172s built from 1977 to 1985. This restriction has made it less interesting for me, since I own a 172 built in 1967. It is clearly written, easy to read, with practical information covering all important issues.

It covers almost everything you may want to know if you neeed to fly a Cessna 172 and you have no previous experience with it.

It is not a substitute for the POH but I am sure you will read this book from page page 1 to the end and you will be satisfied.

I previously owned a similar book (Cessna 152) and loved it, so I bought this one too. If you are a NEW Pilot, or just new at flying Cessnas, this is a book that you should read. It starts with a brief history and a very thorough description of the aircraft, helping you become familiar with all aspects of it. The chapters are well divided and it has a very detailed explanation of all different systems, including electrical, performance, mechanical, structural, etc. It is NO REPLACEMENT for a POH, but really good reading if you want to know everything that you need to know about the aircraft. I highly recommended, specially if you are a Student Pilot.

I haven't flown in many years. Before using a computer flight simulator I needed a review of the Cessna 172. This book provided just what I was looking for. It will not teach me how to fly but, it will bring back once known facts and settings of this aircraft and make X-Plane more meaningful.

Cost very reasonable, shipping was quick and the book was well packaged.
