A friend of mine who's nuts about all things that fly gave me Rocket Man and insisted I read it. I expected a boring old science bio, but I was surprised by how interesting and well-written it is. Goddard was this Cassandra-like, paranoid genius. Nobody ever believed that his rockets would fly, that his rockets would the be future of airplanes and weapons, and that rockets would take man to the moon. His achievements were pretty amazine, but the really interesting part of his story is what he didn't get to do, because he was too suspicious of the government and other scientists. This book is really good, and not just space-nuts and model rocket builders will like it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
