The Logic of Microspace is three books in one. The technologies underlying small space were the subject of Rick’s widely acclaimed first book, Micro Space Craft, which sold out its first printing by word of mouth. This highly understandable, entertaining book, called the only comedic "page-turner" ever written about aerospace engineering, has been thoroughly updated and is the first book within The Logic of Microspace.
The second book within this trilogy-inside-one-"cover" brings the same understandable, humorous, fast-reading and informative style of the technical sections to a complementary book on minimum size and cost mission management and the philosophical and often surprising psychological underpinnings of minimum-cost space missions. The third part of The Logic of Microspace is a dramatic novella, possibly the first in any aerospace text, describing several alluring opportunities for benefiting humanity and the space industry via low-cost satellites and space missions.

Books like this aren't usually made into audiobooks, but they should be!
Clear pronunciation, interesting intonation and inflection. She lets you have access to the book rather than distract from the material.
If you are interested in space development and small satellites in particular, this will be a VERY informative book!
