Private Pilot Magazine Senior Editor Norm Goyer read through the book and said, "KEEP THIS ONE!"
In April 2004, Flying Magazine said "EVERYTHING EXPLAINED packs together a wealth of funny explanations, cheesy clip art and tons of graphs and illustrations to actually make it, believe it or not, FUN to bone up on the regs!"
Seller's Note: I've discovered this is also a popular reference for airlines when creating hiring exams along with the ATP test prep books.
