Is this book rocket science for 'people in a hurry'?

Dilip Well, not exactly. As the title suggests the book is about the story behind the development of liquid rocket propellants during early and mid-20th century. It's the history of these liquid propellants and only the liquid propellants. So it doesn't cover any other topics outside this. But it's quite good read( and humorous too). You can actually finish it within a week considering you know a bit of high school chemistry.
SpaceX Fan Absolutely not. There's a lot of chemistry and, while readable to the average Joe, it was definitely a struggle for me to get through the chapter on hypergols.
