The Advanced Pilot’s Flight Manual, 8th Edition. The newest edition, this book has the information needed to be an accomplished professional pilot. As an excellent prep for the Commercial knowledge and practical tests, the reader will learn about airplane stability and control ("I'm well under gross weight, what IAS should I use for turbulence?"), along with details on checking out in advanced aircraft types (why does single-engine controllability of the light twin get better with heavier weight but worse with aft CG?). Emergency procedures, advanced navigation, high altitude operations and discussion of the knowledge and practical test round out this useful book. Glass cockpits are discussed in detail.
