9780471291053: Countdown: A History of Space Flight
Review:

"A lively account of the development of space activities in the U.S. and the Soviet Union ... as good a one-volume overview of space as exists."-Scientific American "If you've already got loads of books on the history of space flight, great news: you can give them all to Oxfam ... All you need now is this, the most comprehensive, up-to-date and best written history of space flight there is."-The Times (London) "By far the most significant and technically insightful account of the ventures into the space environment I have seen."-Lee Atwood, former president and chairman, North American Aviation "By far the best history of space flight I have ever read. It is detailed, lucidly written for the layman, and full of fascinating stories."-Adrian Berry, Daily Telegraph
