  2. 5 stars for the content, 3 stars for the delivery and prose.

  3. I haven t been very good about writing reviews in a timely manner for the past few weeks months This is one of those that I should have reviewed soon after I finished it, and I justdidn t At least I m finally getting around to it, I guess.Anyway, I checked this out via my library s Overdrive service I have to admit that I didn t really know much about Curiosity before listening to this I knew that it existed, I knew a few fun things related to it pictures, it singing itself Happy Birt I haven t been very good about writing reviews in a timely manner for the past few weeks months This is one of those that I should have reviewed soon after I finished it, and I justdidn t At least I m finally getting around to it, I guess.Anyway, I checked this out via my library s Overdrive serv...

  5. A thorough, vivid and engrossing account.

  7. I enjoyed this book, but with a bit of hesitation I have read a few books about the Mars Rover before, and this one concerned me the most about the expense and the use of funds to get the Rover on Mars The data is invaluable, but I think Rob Manning, in an attempt to provide honesty and clarity, scared people who love and want us to explore space, but also think it can be done for less money I understand why he sees the money involved as invaluable,...

  8. Every Space enthusiast must read this book An inside account can only perfectly be explained by someone who have worked on the project Rob Manning successfully explains the complexity of the rover and w...

  9. A fascinating read Highly recommend.

  10. A fascinating account of how things work at NASA I strongly recommend this book to software engineers but keep in mind that the story covers a lot of other aspects of the mission as well.
