I just got a copy of Fighter Combat Tactics and Maneuvers. I skimmed a bit of it earlier, thinking i'd learn something.

Well, I did....

Firstly, pilots don't write well.
Secondly, you CAN skim a book and learn something.

I scored a few kills tonight in a german bird. I never score kills in german birds.

This books gets my seal of approval, whatever that means.

Fighter combat is arguably the single most informative source you can read about dogfighting, the author was no slouch. It's simply an amazing piece of work.

Speaking of how-to books, here's a book about a world ping pong champion who went on to become a shrimp boat captain.
