"Modern High Power Rocketry 2" is a very good reference for the collection. There is also a more recent publication "Make: High–Power Rockets" by Mike Westerfield.

Don't forget that your local library usually has funds for new books. If you ask them nicely and provide the details they are quite likely to purchase the book :) .

I actually donated a copy of Modern High Power Rocketry 2 to the library, and asked them to purchase two other books. Let's spread the word :wink:

I must use that as excuse to SWMBO when I make my next rocketry purchase: “Just think of all the QFF points I’m making, my dearest!” :wink:
