It's an easy read, and you can almost imagine hearing the words come from the author's mouth in some small-airport coffee shop or sitting in a hangar under the wing of a small plane. Don't be deceived by the informal delivery, though -- Buck is talking about serious topics that affect your safety and proficiency.
If you want to learn from a veteran pilot and avoid mistakes that others have made, pick up a copy of The Art of Flying. Read it through. Then keep it around and, every now and then, pick it up again and read a chapter. The chapters are nicely "bite-sized," so you can do this using odd moments. You'll find yourself nodding your head and thinking, "Oh, yes, I want to remember that!"
This book is well worth the money -- and the time -- you'll invest in it.
