There are many good books about aviation and flying, but probably the most important one is the "Pilot's Handbook of Aeronautical Knowledge" published by the FAA itself. This is the basic study guide to prepare for the pilot's written tests, and introduces pilots to the broad spectrum of knowledge needed as they progress through pilot training. It is available as a printed book from several sources, or can be downloaded directly from the FAA web site at...

FAR(federal aviation regulations).

I agree with Zaphod. "Stick and Rudder" should be read several times, starting BEFORE you go for even an introductory airplane ride. As you move along in your training, you'll get more out of it every time. During that time, you'll be introduced to FAR/AIM which is VERY important. Be careful, it is also an excellent sleeping aid, but you REALLY do need to pay attention!

I usually just carry around an actual Holy Bible. Less pages than the FAR/AIM book and about as useful.

Pray before every flight and hoping training and experience take over during emergencies.
