Well there you go. Coolest book I've read all year, this is the book I've been searching for (kinda of). I love space, I love rockets, and I really like model rockets because I didn't go to college.

This was a great handbook--more of a technical manual, but an easy and enjoyable read. What was funny was the little name dropping of the companies that the younger Stine works for throughout the book. Estes Rockets has been around since 1958 and is a good solid company. But we didn't really hear about Estes Rockets in the book. Instead, the author always recommended Quest Aerospace rockets--his company.

read this with the Girl Scout troop, while we were learning Rocketry. Terrific basic handbook and guide. We used it to design and build our own rockets for the TARC competition, and watched October Sky as part of the activity. that's another book to read...
