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 lil' bible here is easy to read and fallow and filled with answers to so many questions, many that I hadn't even been asking. I almost put the thing down after the first two chapters, I was all "I know this shit, ugh", yep I thought I had wasted my 18 bucks, but no, oh no. This book is filled wi...more
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.

The model rocketeer's "bible". Required reading for anyone seriously interested in building and flying model rockets. Particularly useful for those wishing to graduate from commercially available model kits and move on to kitbashing or designing one's own model rockets.
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...
This was a very Interesting book about model rockets.
I knew Mr. Stine...great man, mentor, and missed....
