Review
Thank you for bringing Frati's "The Glider" to the English speaking world and the modern era. I've followed the updates for several years now and realize what a painstaking task it must be to accurately translate a technical work while keeping it both readable and contemporary. You're doing a remarkable job. My hat's off to you. I think the book is to design as Langewiesche's "Stick and Rudder" is to flying. - Daniel Kauffman

Printed Version Available
Let me know if you want a printed and bound version of this book. Sometimes it is nice to have a printed version in hand - rather than a digital version to read only at your computer. I can print it on 8.5 x 11" paper, double-sided, using my color laser printer, and bind it with clear plastic covers and a "VeloBind" binder for 20 cents/page. The finished product looks great.
