This is a great book for any discipline. Although a nursing book, my former military pilot boyfriend read it as well and thought this was a great book for his new pilots. This book helped the novice pilots grasp the concepts of newness as well as the mentors that really understood a little better as to how they would progress to expert pilots.

Not exactly a book I wanted to read and I didn't read it cover to cover.It was very useful in my third year reflective essay for nursing though. So I do recommend it. Its short and rather easy to scan through to find the pertinent information.
