Why This Book?
The IFR system is highly technical and complex. I've been very disappointed by the materials on the market to help my own students understand and use the system. At the same time there are highly technical manuals (mainly from the FAA) which gather dust on the shelf. The combination of a book that has enough "tech" but is still usable was the motivation behind this manual. It's a book that not only gives you the detailed step-by-step information for your instrument checkride, but also provides the tips and tricks of the IFR system that will keep you safe.
