This is a great compendium of historical articles on satellite communications, beginning with fascinating accounts of early passive satellite transmissions via the moon, space needles, metallized balloons, and other objects. For free or not, this is a great read for anyone interested in the history of satellite communications. The only negative is that the book has obviously been scanned by optical character recognition, which was not 100% successful. There's about one typo every page or two, and the text of all of the footnotes for each physical page gets inserted periodically within the text, but it isn't too much of a hassle to scroll past them. My thanks to B&N for making this available on Nook for free.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
