Format: Paperback
Wow is this SOOOO cool! The actual pilot's manual and emergency escape manual for the X-15, the first plane to fly into space. If you've ever built the Revell model for this plane, you know how incredibly cool it is! Now you can find out first-hand how to fly it, right down to making sure your fuel mixture is right. I have huge admiration for those pilots who stepped into this aircraft, when you see the cockpit layout photos it's just incredible anyone could take it all in and fly the darn thing. Anyway, well worth careful study -- I spent all afternoon curled up with this thing. My only complaint is I can't fly the real thing, except on my computer that is!

Format: Paperback
The book's detailed content on the operations and controls of the X-15 is quite good. The book is from the early 1960's and contains mostly text and line drawings. The quality of most pages is adequate (legible). While some photographs in the book are OK, 13 at the back are of very poor quality. They appear to have been photocopied multiple times and have no gray values. (In fairness, the Amazon Book Description hints at less than perfect quality: "This affordable black and white facsimile has been reformatted. Care has been taken however to preserve the integrity of the text.") Too bad that an original copy was not available to the publishers.
