This is one of the most concise and well-illustrated books on flying twin-engine airplanes available. It covers all facets of multi-engine flight with these features:

Orientation to multi-engine terms, definitions, and systems
Preflight, ground operations, takeoffs, high speed flight, slow flight, stalling, and landings
Night and IFR operations
Includes a syllabus with lesson objectives, suggested lectures and exercises, as well as checkride questions that apply to any airplane.

There is a wealth of flight training information that relies on word of mouth for distribution. Some pilots are lucky enough to rub shoulders with someone who had the wisdom of experience and the desire to pass it on. David Robson's book effectively broadens the distribution by sharing his wealth of multi-engine flying know-how in a new manual for pilots and flight instructors.

Transition to Twins provides information and advice to pilots undergoing their first Multi-Engine Rating, and is one of the most concise and well-illustrated books on flying twin-engine airplanes. This manual covers all facets of multi-engine flight:

Chapters 1—9 discuss all areas of twin operation including system descriptions; aerodynamics; normal and emergency operations; VFR, night, and IFR considerations; flight planning; and weight and balance. A chapter on commercial operations introduces not only the airmanship required, but also how to deal with passengers, crew, cargo, schedules, and duty times.
Chapter 10 lays out each step to earning a multi-engine rating, including a syllabus with both ground and flight training lessons. The book concludes with questions to prepare pilots for a multi-engine checkride, to check-out in a new multi-engine airplane, or for an insurance competency exam for any twin airplane.
Transition to Twins will prove an invaluable manual to student and instructor alike.
