Rocket science made (more) simple.




Here's a selection of useful books for the amateur rocket scientist.  These practical texts have long served as classic reference resources for hands-on learning by rocket scientists, engineers, and technicians.  We consider several of them essential for successful propulsion experiments. 

Realizing that many of these books are costly, we also offer used editions and reprints of many important publications.  Often these are long out-of-print and quite hard to find.  And, in most cases, the older editions contain almost all of the same material, and "do the job" if you're on a budget.

You'll find "Buy Now" buttons for each book, so you can use our secure (encrypted) system to pay by credit card.  Then click any "View Cart" button to check, revise, or submit your order.  Most books are shipped within 24 hours of payment, usually via Priority Mail.
