Has anybody read Shawn Coyle's "Cyclic & Collective"? It's a little expensive - is it worth the money?

If you're someone who likes to continually read up on stuff, this is a book you will use for years. The updated version (more art and science) is a more fleshed out version of the original, it's well worth it.
If you want something to help pass exams then put away, maybe not quite what you're looking for.

The opinion of a PPL(H) studying for CPL(H) exams so I may change my mind one day!

I bought a copy and have only read a few chapters (got loads of other stuff to read at the moment!) but from what I have read it seems well worth it. Having read a lot of dry books (Wagtendonk et al) it has a really refreshing style - as though you're being told stuff by a mate or good-humoured mentor. He obviously has flown a helicopter or two and wants to impart knowledge is the way it comes accross.

Recommended!

The books are simple enough for a newbie to understand, and still techo enough that a grumpy old goose like me can still learn something.

He is also a nice guy in person, and he autographed my copy.
