The author describes many parts in detail, and has done thorough research; other parts are yet to be finalized. One might quibble with a few details (redundancy in some sections, seemingly inconsistent dismissal of nuclear power, lots of acronyms -- not enough to give it less than 4 ½ stars), but this is overall a step in the right direction, and with all the research the author put into it, the book makes a great reference for any discussion of future Mars plans or for anyone writing about Mars. If you've read about Mars Direct and other plans, you'll probably want to read this to get updated on new innovations.
The author and those that helped him define the mission architecture did a superb job. I'm a retired aerospace engineer and was pleased to find a lot of innovative ideas. Everything was well researched and technically accurate. I learned a lot from this book.
With a focused look at what is achievable now, drawing on known scientific progress and up to the minute example usages of technology we already have available, this book really opened my eyes, and left me feeling truly excited about what is about to come.
Excellently written, 5 stars.
