'It is an informative read which shows that space was and not is just the preserve of the superpowers.' -- Spaceflight, Vol 43, Issue 5, 2001

It also appears to be thoroughly comprehensive in its cataloging of orbital launches (successes and failures) through 1999 (minus perhaps one from Japan). It also mentions sounding rockets developed and used.
One curious omission is any discussion of India's military or defense goals with its space program. Perhaps there really are none, but the book describes tensions between the US and India over KVD-1 engine sales from Russia, suggesting to me that there is more of a story here than is told.
The limited budget information provided is insightful.
Certain sections are redundant and perhaps poorly written, but other than that, it wasn't bad.
