has lots of children who love listening to books...
One of our boys is listening to this every night and is enjoying it very much. It is certainly very listen-able, well presented and very interesting content.
This does exactly what it says on the tin. It outlines all the things you need to consider if designing a spaceship for low orbit flight. It's non-technical and accessible to anyone.
I particulary like the quirky style of writing and narration. This is definitely an audiobook I'll keep on my iPod to listen to time and time again.
"Fun to listen to, learned something too"
This audiobook is actually about how to get a carreer in space. I'm not planning to, but it's fun to listen to this book anyway. It tells you about the challenges of spaceflight and how rockets work. Maybe the book is slightly out of date, as it assumes the Constellation program is still going to the moon. And NASA actually has a budget. But that doesn't hurt the story that much.
I hope the narrator does more audiobooks, because I've enjoyed his narration.
Content 4/5, narration: 5/5, "in-car-listenability": 5/5
A wealth of info, great writing, logical sequence, top notch narrating!
I really enjoyed the book, and highly recommend it especially if you have more than an average interest in the subject
