"A life saving classic

While this book was written a long, long, time ago, in a sky far away, the principals of flight haven't changed. I've found it excellent and very engaging. Much more so than the Cessna manual I got when I first signed up to learn to fly.

Read it. It could save your life someday in a "nasty" situation.

Does your spouse lack the same level of enthusiasm for flying as you? Perhaps "Scared stiff" better describes his or her feelings towards light aircraft? Then here's the book for them!

Taking Charge of Your Fertility : The Definitive Guide to Natural Birth Control and Pregnancy Achievement by Toni Weschler.
List Price: $22.00 Our Price: $17.60 You Save: $4.40 (20%)
This comprehensive book explains in lucid, assured terms how to practice the fertility awareness method (FAM), a natural, scientifically proven but little-known form of birth control (which is not to be confused with the woefully ineffective "rhythm" method). Author Toni Weschler has been teaching fertility awareness for almost 20 years, and it's only just now gaining in popularity. As the book explains, by using simple fertility signs including peaks in morning body temperature and changes in cervical position and cervical mucus, it's possible to determine when ovulation is taking place.
