Handbook of Model Rocketry (Mechanical Engineering)
Handbook of Model Rocketry (Mechanical Engineering)
by G. Harry Stine
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Rocket Science Made Easy!, 15 Jun. 2010
This book is definitely one of the best purchases I have made towards my hobby and interest in model rocketry. This Bible of rocketry as it may be better (or more appropriately) known has pretty much everything you need to get you started on your way to launching rockets as well as the fundamentals of designing your own! It also includes a chapter on aeroynamics and how to work out stability and and other important coefficients that you may find useful.

Ultimately as far as getting your started and maybe seeing you well through the majority of your rocketry career, this book is perfect, however if you are looking for something a little more 'hard core' and far more mathematically in depth and complete then you should have a look at a book called 'Topics in Advanced Model Rocketry' however the price tag is a bit on the expensive side for this more advanced book, making the Handbook of Model Rocketry a fantastic starting place while you find your feet in the subject

All in all though a superb book and one that is very easy reading and flows well.
