So many errors that jerk you out of the reading process.
And far too long. A good editor to reduce the length of unneeded sections drastically would improve this book dramatically.
Mr Baxter has produced some great books and this could have been one of them but without the proper support an author needs from the publisher this falls short.
One thing I am finding questionable, is not something I would blame on the author. This is the spelling! I have found many glaring spelling mistakes. One of my favorites is that "shuttle" is often spelled "shutde" (ie: The purpose of this memorandum is to obtain your approval to use Space Shutde and...). At this level of book cost, one would assume that some spelling checking would be done.
