Things that I thought would have more substance like center of gravity and center of pressure (two of the critical components of the physics of this sport) were left to "computer programs" which do the calculations for you. I like theory. I did find some awesome sites that might make this book less useful in that regard.
The sections on protocols and interacting with officials in a rocket shoot were helpful and likely mandatory in setting behaviour and actions of rocketeers.
Overall a good value
The Kindle version (Amazon, I hope you are listening) of this book is very disappointing. A paragraph will stop on mid-sentence with a photo caption. Bolded text appears in the middle of a paragraph. Words are jammed together. The photos and illustrations are of poor quality. Having the ability to zoom in on the photos makes them even worse. It makes an otherwise excellent book very hard to read; almost painful.
I'm new to eBooks and so far I'm not impressed with them. With the displays Kindles have, there is no reason why the quality and original formatting of the book couldn't be retained.
A solid foundation is laid with this book. It is a great investment in your future success in the hobby and beyond.
