From the Introduction:
A theme that runs through this book is that if emergency procedures are truly learned, and then practiced, they cease to be emergencies and simply become additional procedures. This is the goal of most of the better training facilities that teach pilots of airliners and corporate jets. When the light plane pilot is trained to the same standard, the risks associated with aviation shrink tremendously.
