Being a graduate student in technical space studies, I have used Space Mission Analysis and Design (affectionately known as SMAD) in all of my satellite engineering classes, and even in the 'soft science' space classes (policy, law, etc.). The wealth of knowledge contained in SMAD would take years to obtain through traditional engineering texts - these authors knew what was relevant to designing space missions (near Earth through interplanetary), and all of the associated issues and compiled it into these 1010 pages. If you're a satellite operator, designer, mission planner, space studies student or just interested in HOW spacecraft and space mission requirements are developed, SMAD (Space Technology Library Vol 8) needs to be the first of many texts added to your space library.
