I enjoyed it and if I ever decide to fly a kestrel I will definitely dig it back out.

Seriously considering flying a kestrel next year after reading it.

Just finished it. Depends on what you mean by "good read". As a pre apprentice, I was hoping for something a little bit more in the style of William Oakes "Guide to Training The Passage Red-Tail". But it is a good informative book, I'd recommend it to apprentices if they want to fly one, or even if they don't. :-P

I bought it after flying a red tail for a year, because I intended to fly a kestrel.
It if really a good idea for a person intending to fly a micro falcon.
I do not feel it would be adequate for a pre-apprentice studying for the test, but there are so many great internet resources on the web for that.
It is very small and I read it in one day. I also got it for a 14 year old to read because it is not as intimidating as NAFHH which he has refused to read.
