The book does not get into more advanced topics such as airline operations or instrument flying, or the `soft' factors such as career advice, but what is does cover is extensive. It comprehensively explains the basics for topics that all new pilots should be familiar with such as: Aircraft and Engine operations, Air Law, Meteorology, Navigation and Radio Procedures and, Airmanship.
"From the Ground Up" is a great book for the new flight student eager to learn about the technical aspects of flying.
