Save your dollars, go buy an instructor a cup of coffee instead
by Kevin from Santa Rosa CA USA 

Pros: Accurately portrays a few issues to watch for, recommends a syllabus.
Cons: Repetetive piece-meal copied and pasted FAQ's from a website with some dialogue.
Review: Seriously save your money and go visit your local FBO and ask an instructor for a few words of wisdom, you'll develop a relationship and get the same answers in under 10 minutes. The book does give a few types of instructors to avoid or keep on track by knowing their game. It also prompts you to buy a syllabus and hold an instructor to it as best possible. A final word of caution, this book appears to be a compilation of website FAQ's which are repetitive in nature and geared towards the individual who already has a bit of aviation vocabulary.

I saved $1000 by page 10
by Glenn Wilson from Yorkshire, UK 

Pros: Practical Advice, Flight Bag Sized
Cons: Wish it were double the size
Review: This book saved me $1000 by page 10. This book was easy to read, in fact I couldn't put it down and read it straight through. It was full of wisdom that I've found myself going back to from time to time. It doesn't waste your time -- gets right to the point.
