4.0 étoiles sur 5 A "Bible" for the beginning skydiver 22 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book continues in the excellent tradition similar to the "Dummies" books. It might just as well have been called "Skydiving for Dummies." It is especially aimed at the beginning skydiver who wants all the information available for just before, and just after the first few skydives. However, as an experienced skydiver with over 1,300 jumps, I also learned a few things. Humorous little quotations adorn many of the pages, helping to lighten up what could, in areas, become so technical as to be, well, overwhelming for the skydiving neophyte. But, in my experience, beginning jumpers will gobble up all the information available. And this is a complete and healthy meal. The only thing missing is the dessert--that is, the photos and info that show how really COOL and high-tech the sport has become. And the camaraderie that develops among like-minded sport parachutists, who are also called skydivers. It is really a fun and exciting sport for today. If you want to learn all about it, this is the book for you!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the how-to "Bible" of recreational skydiving. 4 juin 2000
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Now in a completed revised, updated and expanded eighth edition, The Skydiver's Handbook continues to be the "bible" of this dramatic and popular sport. Skydiving is much more than just jumping out of an airplane with a parachute. Skydiving today is as close as a human can come to unencumbered bird-like flight, and with proper aerobatic maneuvering, a skydiver can cover about 1.35 miles on a sixty-second skydive from 12,500 feet, providing 10,000 feet of freefall. Skydiving is aptly described as high-speed vertical aviation, and The Skydiver's Handbook is a reader-friendly, comprehensive, reliable, informative, and complete instruction manual and guide to a safe, exciting, skill-building skydiving experience.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A necessity for any newbie, student or novice skydiver! 29 décembre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
After reading it and digesting alot of it I have come to quite a few conclusions. This book is an incredible source of knowledge and enlightenment on the fundamentals of skydiving. It is so well written that even the newest student can understand the technical aspects and physics of our sport. It is an awesome plethora of knowledge combined into one little 396 page book and well worth the $$ spent and the time committed to reading it. To all skydivers: A great tool for re-inforcement and reference.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very helpful 6 juillet 2003
Par P. C. Van Dongen - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a good book for beginning skydivers. It has a lot of stuff that every skydiver should know about many aspects of skydiving. It is less interesting for experienced skydivers, for a lot of things will already be known to them (but there are still a lot of useful gems in this one)
I definitely recommend this book. Also consider "The Skydiver's Survival Guide". It picks up where this book leaves off.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 EXCELLENT! A must-read for any new skydiver. 12 juillet 2005
Par Julie Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
One of the quotes in this book is "the difference between fear and respect is knowledge." As a newbie to skydiving I have (like many others, I'm sure) wanted to gather as much information as possible about the sport, how the equipment works, the safety features that have evolved over the years to keep skydivers safer. So I've done a lot of research, thumbed through a lot of books and paid very close attention at the dropzone where I'm training.

This book, unlike anything else I've seen, organizes the principles of skydiving and the descriptions of various seemingly every possible relevant point into a very easy-to-follow format. I'm about halfway through it now and the more I read, the more comfortable I am with everything. Poynter and Turoff seem to simply be reinforcing everything I've learned from my actual instructors (both AFF and tandem).

To the point, if you're considering skydiving, if you're new to the sport, if you're an instructor looking for resources to pass along to uneasy students, this is it... a fabulous companion to the training you'll get at your own dropzone.
