Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a unique guidline for fresh off student status skydivers and experienced pilots as well. You will find any information you need to get a deeper understanding for what is going on when your freefall is over.

You should not reed it and put it away in the bookshelf but you should use it. It's truly a book to work with every weekend when you go skydiving. Keeping all of Brian's useful hints in mind makes one feel more safe in any situation under canopy no mater if you learn to swoop or you have to come home from a long spot. This truly saved my ass!!

This book is full of essential knowledge you usually don't get at your local dropzone...
I recommend it to any skydiver in this world especially those ones I would like to jump with 50 years from now ;)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful content, needs some proof-reading 25. Mai 2013
Von J. Cadieux - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, beware that this is a physically large book. The size is 8.5"x11" (A4 size), the same as what probably goes into your home printer.

I am an inexperienced jumper, sub-100 jumps and on my first non-student canopy. I found a lot of good information in this book, teaching me the basics of how the parachute works and why it does what it does when I pull the toggles. It's worth reading it with a highlighter in your hand, to mark the most important tips for future reference. I read the book from the beginning, stopping when I came to the chapter on high-performance landings. I am too new to be putting those ideas into my head. I also didn't read the hippy self-improvement stuff in the second half of the book.

My biggest problem with the book, and the reason I took off a star, is the apparent lack of proof-reading. There were many spelling and grammatical mistakes, more than in most things I read. Maybe a nitpick, but it is a book and should be proofread properly.

I can't say enough about this book. Reading through a second time and highlighting. Loads of canopy performance info and things to ponder/understand to make one safer after deployment. Brian does a great job weaving the psych aspects of the sport into stuff I can understand and then improve. I'm not going to be a serious swooper but the info is applicable in other way too. IMO, a must have for ANY jumper. Thanks Brian.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A well presented wealth of knowledge 21. März 2017

This book is fantastic. Brian's friendly yet eloquent writing style brings the reader easily digestible knowledge of canopy flight - from theory to equipment to skills and techniques. My canopy piloting and love of the sport as a whole has increased even more having read this book. I highly recommend it to experienced and new skydivers alike!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book for swoopers, but others will like it also... 16. August 2014
Von A. D. Hall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Not a beginning skydiver's book, but some great info in this. He does a great job explaining how the canopy works and other aspects of the entire systems such as the risers. Unless you are a swooper, or wanting to learn to swoop, the second 1/3 of the book will be pretty much lost on you. However, the last part of the book dealing with fear and the human mind is outstanding. I liked that part so much, I turned right around and got Germain's other book "Transcending Fear: The Doorway to Freedom" to get the full intent of the last part of the this book. Overall, a great book to learn about the canopy and the way it works.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must for every canopy pilot 1. Februar 2011
Von Matthew D. Kaye - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Short of attending one of Brian Germain's canopy piloting courses, this book is a must for any safe jumper looking to better understand the inner workings of a ram air canopy. It's descriptive, yet easy to understand. It focuses on what makes a canopy fly the way it does, how to manipulate and control your canopy beyond the obvious toggle turns, and how to avoid situations that could end your skydiving career. Brian Germain is a subject matter expert on canopy design and performance. The knowledge written in this book will help you take your canopy ride to the next level while still giving you the know-how to stay safe.
