You won't be disappointed with this book because it is very interesting and easy to understand. It seems to cover much of the essential information that beginner pilots need to get started. There is actually information that pertains to novice and intermediate flying, as well as a little advanced flying information.
I would not recommend taking any flying lessons without reading this book first.
Even if I do not follow up with going to Lookout Mountain in Georgia to take flying lessons, I am glad that I read the book because I learned a lot. Almost every page is useful information about hang glider flying.
If you know nothing about Hang Gliding AND nothing about Piloting an aircraft, this would be the perfect book for you.
I was a Commercial Pilot so most of the information I already new. Hang Glider specific information was what I didn't know. This book helped me with that.
