Product Details

Promotional Information

George Pendle is a highly promotable young journalist who writes for The Times, amongst others 'George Pendle's superbly detailed and addictively readable book makes the reader fall in love with these young men's energy and enthusiasm, and the blazing trail that Parsons left behind him as he finally fell to earth' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'A case of truth being stranger than fiction in all its glory...the whole mix is fascinating. Parsons' struggle to achieve a working rocket would make a good story in their own right, but add in the science fiction, add in the strange religion and characters like Hubbard - and finally, throw into the mix Parsons' horrendous death in an apparently accidental explosion at's a cracker, that rarest of things a popular science book that's a page-turner too' Popular 'George Pendle, with his graceful, measured prose, describes a handsome man of charm and intellect...The author skilfully steers us through the quagmire of Parson's personal life to place him on the pedestal that he deserves, so that we may admire his remarkable legacy to modern rocket science' OBSERVER 'Readable and engrossing' LITERARY REVIEW
