Publisher's Summary

Are you the kind of person who enjoys the thrill of adrenaline pumping through your body? Are you constantly on the lookout for some new excitement or adventure?
Let's face it; your working life can be really boring at times, especially if you have one of those desk jobs that require sitting for long periods of time. Sometimes you can almost feel those muscles atrophying.
To compensate, you just have to get out and do something active at the weekends. Learning a new sport or hobby is a great way to let off steam and get some exercise at the same time.
If that new sport contains just a tiny element of danger, it seems even more attractive.
Or maybe you just love nature and want to get out into the wilds to enjoy the peace and quiet. Finding a sport that will let you both get some much-needed exercise and enjoy nature all at the same time is not difficult.
Just think: paragliding!
Paragliding is not a difficult sport to learn. It does not take hours of practice like learning to play tennis well does. You can learn to paraglide in a weekend or two.
This book will explain all about it.
But wait!
What exactly is paragliding?
Paragliding is flying!
But it is flying with a special wing to help you sail through the sky.
It uses a specially made wing that is attached to the paraglider via a harness. The paraglider runs downhill to inflate the wing which then gently lifts you off the ground.
Naturally you have to learn how to do this properly - and how to land safely. But such lessons are easily available and of a reasonable price.
Just imagine floating through the silent atmosphere just like an eagle. You will be at one with nature in a way that few other sports allow.

Basic

This is old material 2010 and very basic, repetive and US focused. I expected more.

A very disappointing overview of paragliding

A very generalized overview of the sport that offered no specifics or technical advice or information. A complete waste of time!
