Best book of its type I have bought,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Backyard Ballistics: Build Potato Cannons, Paper Match Rockets, Cincinnati Fire Kites, Tennis Ball Mortars and More Dynamite Devices (Paperback)
I went through a phase of interest in this type of "boys toys/science experiments" book and I think I bought 3 or 4 on the trot for toilet seat reading (puns unintentional). I can testify that of the 3 or 4 this was the best. Far less "politically correct" and more interesting than the others and definitely compelling in terms of the history of ballistics and the "sciencey bits" included. Worth a read, though I have yet to build any of the devices hence haven't managed to blow up my shed yet.
