From the reviews of the second edition:

"Turner (Univ. of Leicester, UK) offers an updated version of his 2000 book. ... He examines rockets and rocket engines from the viewpoint of physical principles and gives accessible explanations on how rockets work. ... Turner uses graphs to help interpret many equations. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates; graduate students." (D.B. Mason, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (10), June, 2005)

"As a rule, textbooks have equations and other books have colour photographs, but this book breaks that rule by including both. Its centre-section of 20 colour plates certainly sets it apart from most textbooks ... . there is plenty of information between the equations to engage anyone with an interest in the technology. It also has a number of appendices and a five-page index. ... The book is usefully up to date in its coverage. ... This book remains an excellent primer on the principles of rocket propulsion." (Mark Williamson, International Space Review, 2005)
