From the reviews of the second edition:

"Turner (Univ. of Leicester, UK) offers an updated version of his 2000 book. … He examines rockets and rocket engines from the viewpoint of physical principles and gives accessible explanations on how rockets work. … Turner uses graphs to help interpret many equations. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates; graduate students." (D.B. Mason, CHOICE, Vol. 42 (10), June, 2005)

"As a rule, textbooks have equations and other books have colour photographs, but this book breaks that rule by including both. Its centre-section of 20 colour plates certainly sets it apart from most textbooks … . there is plenty of information between the equations to engage anyone with an interest in the technology. It also has a number of appendices and a five-page index. … The book is usefully up to date in its coverage. … This book remains an excellent primer on the principles of rocket propulsion." (Mark Williamson, International Space Review, 2005)
