    "This book does not focus on advanced air and space studies. It was an interesting read that brought me up to speed on nuclear history, but had a lot of distracting information not related much to my issue. If it focused more on recent history I think it would have been better."

    "Rhetoric and Reality in Air Warfare goes deep into strategic bombing and methods of air warfare. It is a very dry read but full of interesting information. I am a bit skeptical about the usefulness of some of these methods today though. This book might not be the best if you are looking for current strategies. "

    "This is an amazing book about the aeroplane and how it shaped WWI. However, I would not qualify it as "advanced air and space studies", it's almost the opposite, fundamental basics as it applies to the war. As a foundation for further exploration into advanced topics, it would certainly satisfy and do a decent job - as a resource for advanced topics itself, the book is woefully unequipped."

    "This is more from a war point than a scientific study. I would be interested in space from scientific, not bombing."
