Format: Paperback
Sadly I can't claim to be young anymore, but I'm sure this book will appeal to all ages. The book is packed with information and is delivered in a really engaging, accessible way. A wide range of science and engineering topics (required for rocketry!) is covered, with all the concepts clearly explained often with illustrations. In terms of clear concise writing, I'm reminded of the excellent Ladybird `How it works' books I remember from when I was a kid. The writing style is friendly and makes good use of humour. I'd guess that if you like Richard Feynman's books for instance, you'd appreciate the style of this book.

I think the book works well on two levels. It's got loads of practical stuff if you want to start building your rocket; step by step instructions, photographs, tips and tricks. But it's also a great introduction to the theory of space flight. The book is littered with interesting bits of history and quirky facts.

From a visual point of view, the book looks a bit rough and ready - the picture of a person ballooning up in the vacuum of space was my favourite! Sleek and glossy - perhaps not, but I think this book has charm and rock-solid content. I'm enjoying it!

Format: Paperback
This is a great overall introduction to the science associated with amateur rocket flight and propulsion. Although perhaps aimed at inspiring younger rocketeers, there is plenty of content for the veteran enthusiasts as well and certainly a must for any rocketeers bookshelf.
