Review:

This book is to be highly recommended for its objectivity and realistic appraisal of an inspiring example of a can-do spirit. It is required reading for anyone seeking the truth about how Britain let slip one of its greatest engineering opportunities and was profoundly let down by a political elite that abandoned UK skill and world-class performance. -- Spaceflight "Spaceflight"
