This is where we will be posting any books, or links to books, that are good reading for people interested in rocketry.
Rocket Manual for Amateurs
Capt. Bertrand R. Brinley – 1960
Capt. Brinley’s book is still considered to be one of the best books for beginners to amateur rocketry. Although the text is dated, it remains a classic and an excellent read.
How to Design, Build and Test Small Liquid-Fuel Rocket Engines
Leroy J. Krzycki – 1967
Short, but instructive. Krzycki gives a practical approach to a famously difficult subject.
Design of Liquid Propellant Rocket Engines (First Edition)
Huzel, Huang – 1967
Considered one of the best sources for liquid rocket engine design.
Ignition!: An informal history of liquid rocket propellant
John D Clark – 1972
A lengthy treatment of propellants and propellant chemistry and well worth reading for the history of how some things came to be. Clark also has a great sense of humor.
