Publisher's Summary

Private space flight has long been a science-fiction dream. Today it is on the verge of realisation. Major entrepreneurs, such as the founders of Virgin, Microsoft, and Amazon, are investing in a new generation of lightweight, efficient spacecraft; start-up companies specialising in space tourism and spaceport development are burgeoning; and NASA and American aviation authorities are altering decades-old legislation to make private space adventure possible. How To Build Your Own Spaceship tells you how to join the new space race, where the sky is no longer the limit.

Fun to listen to, learned something too

This audiobook is actually about how to get a carreer in space. I'm not planning to, but it's fun to listen to this book anyway. It tells you about the challenges of spaceflight and how rockets work. Maybe the book is slightly out of date, as it assumes the Constellation program is still going to the moon. And NASA actually has a budget. But that doesn't hurt the story that much.
I hope the narrator does more audiobooks, because I've enjoyed his narration.
Content 4/5, narration: 5/5, "in-car-listenability": 5/5

Played over and over again

One of our boys is listening to this every night and is enjoying it very much. It is certainly very listen-able, well presented and very interesting content.
