The Seven Secrets of How to Think Like a Rocket Scientist
This book explains the methods that rocket scientists use — expressed in a way that could be applied in everyday life. It’s short and snappy and written by a rocket scientist. The book illustrates the methods (the 7 secrets) with anecdotes, quotations and biographical sketches of famous scientists, ideas from sci-fi, personal stories and insights, and occasionally a bit of space history. The author reveals that rocket science is just common sense applied to the extraordinarily uncommon environment of outer space and that rocket scientists are people, too. This book is intended for general "armchair" scientists, and for those interested in popular psychology, space history, and science fiction films.
