It's what it says on the cover!

This really is a TECHNICAL MANUAL. I was expecting something more akin to the H.M.S. Victory manual or the D-Day Operations manual. If you're an engineer, physicist or a fanatic for detail, the this book will appeal, as it is chock-full of engineering layouts and schematics. For the non-technical spaceflight enthusiast, this is probably a little "over the top" on the engineering side, at the expense of the human story.
