I thought it was a good read, too. I'm disappointed that this isn't available in electronic form. I guess I'm going to have to dig through my shed and find my old paperback. It's going to be difficult to read paper again. :-)
The book was one of the better ones about space that i have read. It has alot of information on the future and what we have in that realm of tecnology right now. Dale Brown does a great job on writting about the crisis between Russia and the USA. I do not want to give away the ending so I am just going to mention a few more things. He did a great job in the research department and making sure the informatoin was true. He does jump around some but he does it in a great way. It does swear some but i did not mind that. It added to the tenseness of the situation. It helps you realize what it was really like. I reckamend that you read this book.
