This is one of those books that can appear to be highly specialized and of little interest to anyone who is not a professional working in that discipline. It turns out to be an enjoyable and informative text that is very easy to read and capable of taking the attention of a wide audience. It is difficult to see how any consideration of manned space exploration can be undertaken without having a reliable understanding of the psychology involved.
