Informative and entertaining,
This review is from: How Spacecraft Fly: Spaceflight Without Formulae (Hardcover)
As a science fiction fan with little or no scientific knowledge I found this book provided a fascinating insight into the basics of space orbits and why we are able to send huge lumps of metal out into space,some keeping close to earth to help with the way we live, some flying on to provide even more data to help us understand our world.
Graham Swinerd maintains a light touch always keeping the flow of information entertaining but without compromising the necessary science. A good starting point for anyone interested in spaceflight.
