I have read the book in detail, I want to share some of my thoughts with the readers. I must say that the book is unique and one of its kind in content and presentation. It is such a nice and comprehensive blend of technology-related and application-related aspects of satellites. I would like to highlight two special features. One is comprehensive treatment of non-communication applications of satellites. Second is simple and very easy-to-understand description of technological aspects related to satellite orbits, trajectories and launch procedures, which are otherwise considered as very difficult topics. Congratulations to both authors for successfully attempting such a work, which was badly needed by students, researchers and professionals alike. And congratulations to publishers on bringing out the book in an amazing production get-up.
