"This book is extremely comprehensive in its scope and tackles the issue of pilot recruitment and selection from all angles. I would suggest that this book be one of the first that is read by anyone who is considering a career as an airline pilot. An excellent and comprehensive study, which deserves to be the defining text on the subject." - Captain Dave Fielding, British Airways
