I've heard good things about these. Pricey though.

Frankly, it's not rocket science. I never read a book, it was just a few minutes of theory and then get in the airplane to feel it.

Good luck! You'll enjoy it.

Tailwheel training is fun, and like the previous posters said, don't overthink it. Enjoy!

You will find out that the rudder pedals are not foot rests!
Real pilots are tail dragger pilots! :D
