It will make you a better pilot.
In sum, "there are old pilots, and bold pilots...but no old bold pilots!" Kern's book, unlike any other I've read, will equip you to become that "old pilot"!
As a flight instructor, I recommend this book to ALL my students because if the principles in this book are applied, it is the perfect preventative medicine to most pilot error accidents!
Tony Kern (a former B1 instructor pilot) does an excellent job of conveying the importance (necessity) of discipline in safe flying, as well as explaining some easily overlooked points such as: how to tell when you're missing it, how to acquire it and how to maintain it. Though he focusses on aviation, most of the book's points are generally applicable to any sizeable undertaking.
My only criticism (and it's a minor point) is that some of the impact of the cases will be lost unless you're familiar with instrument flying.
I had three minor problems with the book which would not keep me from recommending it to others as a must read. I will focus on these rather than the positives because the other reviewers have done an excellent job
Several incidents would benefit from a little more data which would give the reader a better understanding of the situation.
I found the discussion of the Ron Brown crash implausable. That a crew with limited experience in ADF flying would not have selected the beacon at the airport which lay ahead and defined the MAP.
Finally , a nunber of the incidents are duplications of those in A Darker Shade of Blue. My guess is that there are enough lumps of smoking aluminum around to offer fresh meat for each of the book ie The AA 965.
These minor comments aside it is a must read
Tony Kern managed to review this subject in its entirety. From the different aspects and perspectives this fundamental component of aviation is studied through the many sources and projections. This book thoroughly illustrate the critical need of such a subject for the completeness of aviation read. It is an essential part for threat and error reduction and definitely make you a more thorough and safer aviator.
I strongly recommend this title.
