Review by: cae13 on Feb. 12, 2011 :
Interesting book, I like it! It covers all aspects of space elevators and much more than I originally thought of myself. Recommended reading for SF and space travel addicts, who will get a link to reality here. And the price is a real bargain.
After heaving read Frank Sch├Ątzings novel "Limit" which uses a space elevator in its plot it was nice to compare his descriptions with the ideas from Brad Edwards and Phil Ragan.
