This is a remarkable book - it could be a script for the entire history of Human Space Flight, thus far. All the technical issues, and how they might be solved are logged. Lots of good info about Mercury (he designed the ship; the program was complete at the time) and Gemini (co-designer, and it was under way). The info about Apollo is very detailed - you can see how methodical the program was, if almost every detail was known in 1965.

Good, thoughtful survey of SF. At some point I can't stand this kind of thing - misses the point, the joy of story when you start projecting too much focus on Oedipal stuff - Everything from Frankenstein to Godzilla (really!) is Oedipal. I lose patience with analysis at some point and think "this is the joy of a story told around the campfire! don't get so het up!" I remember an anecdote of Asimov's - how he realized what fun this was when he was merely re-telling stories from the pulps to his chums. I think that gets lost here.
But many good historical details, following the growth and spread of SF.
