If your math is below high school level, this book may be useful to you. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend this book.
If you are planning to prepare for an interview, I would recommend you save the money you would have spent on this book and buy "Everything explained for the professional pilot" instead; and if you are interviewing for a job in a turbine-powered aircraft, "The turbine pilot's flight manual" - both those books are MUCH more helpful.
"Pilot's rules of thumb" has all of the same information AND MORE for LESS money.
Pilot's rules of thumb: Rules of thumb, easy aviation math, handy formulas, quick tips
The typeface is very large making the "book" a pamphlet - a very expensive pamphlet.
I have been flying jets at the airlines for over 10 years now and there are really only a handful of basic formulas you need and spending the time to go through the entire book would be a waste of your interview preparation time...even though you could thoroughly go through the entire book, cover-to-cover, in an aftenoon.
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless you really had a passion for math and calculating non-essential things in flight.
