[snipped legitimate complaints about GPO]
I've gotten in touch with NASA and they note (as Dwayne also hinted) that
GPO's idiosyncratic behavior is not uncommon. NASA suggests going to:
and going to the link for the NASA Information Center. I suspect the book
will arrive a lot faster from NASA than if you order it from GPO. The only
catch is that NASA only accepts checks, i.e. no credit cards. For those of
you living in the U.S. and living in the WAshington area (admittedly a
small portion of the people on FPSpace), the easiest thing to do might just
be to go to the NASA Information Center at NASA HQ and buy the book off the
racks. It's on the left as you enter the building through its main entrance.
Thanks again for all the positive comments...much appreciated.
P.S. As an aside, Bart mentioned that Jim Oberg's "Red Star in Orbit" and
Phil Clark's "The Soviet Manned Space Program" were important influences.
Both certainly were for me. The former, especially, pretty much converted
me to this field. Both would be on my essential books on space
exploration...is there a good critical/annotated bibliography on space
exploration on-line somewhere?
