The title, JUMP! Skydiving Made Fun and Easy sounds like something from a "Far Side" cartoon. However, New York Safety & Traning Advisor Tom Buchanan breaks the sport into manageable bits for readers ranging from the actively curious to those who have already jumped a few times.

Once my wife decided she was going to make a tandem Skydive, there was no stopping her. She was hesitant about having her cheering section, 3 grand children and daughter in law watching her, but the manager at Pacific Skydiving at Dillingham Field, North Shore, Hawaii, held her load until all were there. When she landed, it was, "I'm going to do that again!!!" And she has, not from beautiful Dillingham Field, but from another family friendly Drop Zone, SkydiveGeorgia.com -- Five times tandem. FYI: Hawaii 50 ran a segment from Dillingham last week and Lost sites can be found within a few miles) Although she has done a zip line, the Jamaican Bob sled, a hot air balloon and 3 or 4 glider rides, she is not yet ready for solo skydiving -- this book is good beginning for her. Not too short, not too long. For me as an ATP rated former AF and Airline pilot, 'Parachuting -- the Skydiver's Handbook' is almost just right, except when it it too long. I've read 'Jump' cover to cover and am passing it off to my wife while I finish 'Parachuting' and a couple other related books...
PS. According to all the instructors I've talked to, once you've jumped once, tandem or otherwise, You are a Skydiver.
So. Go do it.

I haven't made my first jump yet, but this guy does seem to know his stuff. Recommended by my instructor. Includes what one can expect to spend, what to look for in an instructor you can trust, types of equipment, whether to go solo or tandem, etc.. Also provides material to assuage ones anxieties, if one so needs it.
Full of suggestions. One of them made me laugh out loud: "Do not yell 'Geronimo' when leaping from the plane."
Good book for both the curious and those actually planning their first jump.

Skydiving Instructor Tom Buchanan takes the student (and the reader) by the hand from the first jump on up. He tells you what to expect and shows you what to do so that you will progress up the skydiving ladder faster while having even more fun.
See the Table of Contents under Editorial Reviews, above. See the back cover description of the book under From the Inside Flap, above. They describe the book's coverage well.
Books like this contribute to the proliferation of skydiving knowledge and are responsible for the orderly development of the sport of parachuting.
As the co-author (with Mike Turoff) of Parachuting, The Skydiver's Handbook and six other books on parachutes and skydiving, I recognize a good skydiving book when I see one. Highly recommended.

Tom truly enjoys instructing skydiving. It shows loud & clear in his book. He gives a broad overview of the sport. Designed for someone contemplating their first jump. He provides more than enough information. His personable approach doesn't talk over your head. His ratings show he could dazzle us w/technical acumen. That's not teaching though, & he knows it. For all practical purposes, he has a PhD in skydiving. Yet, he loves teaching us lowly Newbies. That's a rare individual, & an asset to the sport. One fact I would like to personally thank him for including: The four clips on a tandem harness, can each support the jumper's weight in an emergency. I trust heavily sewn nylon webbing far more than I trust metal hardware. Metal can fatigue, & break (usually @the worst time). I didn't trust that harness when I jumped. If I got nothing more from this book than the previous pearl. I got my money's worth. I got much more than that. When I'm finishing my license next Summer. I'll be much more comfortable because of this book. Thank's Tom.

Starting out and this was a huge help! Really let me know what to expect when I start AFF next week :)

This is a first rate for book for getting a general overview on skydiving. It is primarily geared toward first time and less experienced jumpers. Mr. Buchanan writes in a very easy readable style. He covers the major areas involved in skydiving ranging from the parachute equipment, the types of planes used, the type of training and instructors available and how to pick the right drop zone for your jump.

There are also chapters on risks and overcoming the fear of jumping. Buchanan does not sugar coat the dangers of skydiving. However, he does go into detail on ways to avoid the risks. He points out what someone should look for and the right questions to ask when contemplating your first jump.

Particularly helpful are the FAQ, at the end of the book which covers most major questions a first time jumper would have about the sport, and the glossary which helps with all the abbreviations and specific terms used in skydiving.

But most of all throughout the entire book Buchanan conveys the shear joy, fun, excitement and enthusiasm that he has for the sport.
