This Microcosm Press "2007 Author of the Year" award winner has graced us once again with the standard astrodynamics reference for those in the business of spaceflight. What sets this book apart is that nearly all of the theoretical mathematics is followed by discussions of practical applications implemented in tested software routines available to readers at no cost. For example, the book includes a compendium of algorithms that allow students and professionals to determine orbits with high precision. Without a doubt, when an astrodynamics problem arises, it will continue to be standard practice for engineers to keep this volume close at hand and "look it up in Vallado". While the first and second editions were exceptionall useful and popular throughout the community, there are a number of reasons why the third edition will be even more so.

The problems posed at the end of each chapter span a useful range of difficulty, appropriate for use in a senior or graduate level course. Given the book's organization and content, I would recommend it for use as a textbook or a reference. --Robert G. Melton, Pennsylvania State University
Vallado is an excellent book on the "real world" use of astrodynamics in space missions. A must have reference for anyone involved in the development, deployment, and operations of space vehicles. --David B. Spencer, Associate Editor, AIAA Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets
This book contains a large collection of information pertaining to operational systems and qualitative insights gleaned from recent applications. The integration of these into a treatment of traditional development of Keplerian motion, perturbed motion, and orbital determination represents a significant accomplishment --John L. Junkins, Texas A&M
