There is nothing special about this average work. It is OK to pass the time if one likes SF.

This is a sequel to 'Rockets in Ursa Major' (1969), and is no better written. The one thing that distinguishes these books from other space thrillers is that the senior author was a brilliant astronomer, so the astronomy actually works (as of the 1960s and 70s of course). They even include a little math.

I read this not knowing it was the second of two...this didn't spoil the experience too much because the book is not particularly challenging or filled with many plot complexities.

I love reading Hoyle(s) and enjoyed this...but I'd not recommend it to many. It's poorly written, has a plot that leaps impossibly and swims too knowingly in its scientific posturing. It works as escapism, however, and made a fine companion on two Eurostar journeys.
