3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 4 Sept. 2013

For example, how does the cooling system work?

Well laid out, and with sufficient detail to engage most with an interest in space exploration. I bought it as a gift, and it was very well received.

This review is from: International Space Station Manual: An insight into the history, development, collaboration, production and role of the permanently manned earth-orbiting complex (Haynes Owners' Workshop Manuals) (Hardcover)
