KIRKUS REVIEW

Highly factual, this text by the author of Jet Planes Work Like This combines physics, mechanics, history and high adventure. Tracing the use of rockets from their Chinese origin, John Taylor meticulously enumerates the various tasks which are the exclusive property of rockets, analyzes the problems which accompanied their evolution showing in detail how they were overcome, and devotes the bulk of his book to the most recent applications of rocket force--missiles, satellites, and universe probing machines.
