Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a treasure of modeling tips and techniques. There are plenty of photos throughout the book to help teach beginning to advanced rocketry techniques. (I didn't notice any problems with my copy regarding printing or photography.) If a person just wants to talk rocketry, this is not a book for them. This is a builders book. From DIY motor retainers to glider trimming, I found it to be a nice addition to my rocketry library.

This book is way too much "Look what I did!" and way too little of "Look what you can do". There are lots of interesting projects but there's way too little information on how to recreate them or how to do similar projects of your own. If you're looking for a muse, this might be enough to get the juices flowing. If you're looking for a how to, there are far better books out there.

Still getting into this hobby, but this will help me out. Still trying to grasp building and other things. This book made things very clear on what i need to do and cleared some things up. Very good book.

Not what I expected for the price. A good deal of quality information and some very handy tips. I especially liked the "project" topics. However I was very dissapointed in the quality of the illustrations and photos. I've seen better results photocopying pictures. Some looked like they were copies of copies taken from a NLQ dot matrix printer. I probably wouldn't recommend it to my rocketry (B.A.R.) friends.
