Shelves: aviation
It's a textbook and it has mighty sparse competition so any notions of "better than" or "worse than" are out the window. The book's subject is the rudiments of flight in regulated airspace. i.e. It expounds on the principles of flight, preparation for flight, procedures, law, navigation, regulations, hazards and risks and their mitigation.

This book is lovely. Not knowing anything about meteorology, airplane construction and other aviation-related topics, I found it enjoyable and useful to read in case you plan to take yourself up to the sky on a plane one day. There are some chapters america-specific, but it is still very universal.

Probably your best bet for a premier Private Pilot's knowledge. Jeppeson clearly outlines every important fact and explains thoroughly.
