    The point of a recognition guide is to help identify objects when you seem them. Chances are most of us will never see any of the objects on this book though...The book provides a short text for each spacecraft, satellite and space agency out there. There's is also pictures and they are fine but I think that it would be good to have a diagram or silhouette for each item as well.The book is pocket-sized and it's good like that but it could be better with more insight on each item and a bigger size (after all you will not carry this around to spot the Hubble or something like that...)

    This book gives you an overview of the main players in the space industry: space agencies, launch sites, launchers, satellites (past, present and future), etc. The book is very detailed with good colour pictures.
