This quick read details how we can use today's technology to begin colonizing Mars within the decade. Zubrin rightly criticizes the current bureaucracy encumbered and politically driven NASA approach. But his complaints have the purpose of showing how the NASA that gave us the moon, could refocus and make Mars possible. The current direction will take 60 years. The goal is to get there as soon as we can.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
I was hoping for a book about colonizing Mars. About 1/3 is devoted to excoriating NASA. The first 1/3 is about a plan for getting to Mars efficiently and I was glad to hear it. But the rest: meh.
Do you think Mars Direct needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Mr Zubrin sounds more like right wing ideologue than a scientist.
