Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"Shayler's painstaking research shines through on every fact-laden page. Photographs, charts and diagrams litter each chapter, helping to build up a comprehensive picture of rarely reported plans, dreams and opportunities. If you have any interest in the history of space exploration, and particularly manned programmes, then this book is something to treasure."
