It's a fast and mildly entertaining read, but the writing is uneven and the situations just had me rolling my eyes. I finished it only because it satisfied several challenges. Here at Walmart.

LibraryCin, April 1, Average rating: 2 out of 5 stars, based on 0 reviews. Overall, this book is a superb introduction to the life of a real mathematician, and a gentle introduction to some very complex mathematics. By the end, nonmathematicians will have gained some intuition about one of the hallmarks of chaos, sensitive dependence on initial conditions, and how chaos can be harnessed to good purpose.
All readers will walk away thinking differently about the cosmos. Far from being a clockwork, it will seem more dynamic, more turbulent, and full of diverse possibilities. The author has laid out the book very well—a teaser of an introduction with just enough details of the Hiten rescue to whet the appetite, but leaving you hungry for more.
About This Item
The language is friendly yet enticing, with nice snappy chapter lengths and informative illustrations in just the right places. There is a good story line running through the book with little surprises like the author being granted a patent for his special route to the Moon in , with many more patents to follow for routes to other destinations. For anyone with an interest in this remarkable development in spaceflight the book is a must. It is a mark of sophistication in the evolution of space travel that simplified solutions to the vexing many-body problem are found to have practical applications.
Belbruno's three-body solution for low-thrust minimum-fuel trajectories serves well not only the future of space flight but helps astronomy in understanding the sometimes erratic motions of celestial bodies. Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut. It is also a must-read for the lawyer-scientist. Finch, Jr. The author succeeds in writing an exciting story about his research on low-fuel space travel, a subject that is not widely known but that will interest many readers.
Moreover, the mathematical aspects of chaos in the context of space missions is well treated at the level of the nonexpert. It is rare to see a nonpedantic book on celestial mechanics that gives some backroom stories about trajectory geeks.
