However, one thing I wanted to note was that the edition of the book received was not the one listed.
I ordered used through amazon and was surprised to receive the Eastern Economy Edition. It is a reprint by PHI Learning Private Limited (not Pearson as listed) in India. It specifically states on the back of the book and the copyright page "For sale in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and SriLanka only." I'm in the US. I imagine as a book it's probably pretty much the same.
I don't know if it is different in content or physical quality. The pages, however, are very see through and I find it makes reading it a bit difficult as the back of the page and the next page both show through quite a bit. I don't know if this is the case with the original edition.
The book has a LOT of information, so much that it can be difficult to read at times, but I'd rather have too much than not enough.
The biggest complaint I have on the book is the authors diagrams. It is presented with a lot of diagrams and drawings to explain the point. Having a STRONG background in aviation, including 21 years in Naval Aviation, 11 of that as a FLight Engineer, and having taken HF in Aviation in my undergraduate stuidies, I can say that there were many times when I understood the material, but didn't understand the drawing or diagram. They're just too confusing sometimes.
All-in-all, I thought the book was very good. The examples used at the beginning of the chapters were helpful in establishing a baseline with which to establish the lesson material.
