    New to sport. 60 freefalls. I was curious how 300 pages about canopies would be written. This was packed with well laid out useful, thoughtful, and thought-provoking information about piloting your canopy. Concisely written without a lot of fluff. First 240 pages about piloting dynamics answering the how-to, effects, and why's. Last 60 pages discussed theories of mental processes affecting skydivers and canopy pilots. So much info here, it would be worth Brian putting together a flexible jump schedule with dive plans to get skydivers through all of his techniques in an organized manner. Excellent resource. A must read for newcomers! And likely a lifelong go-to resource for veterans.
