PVC Rocket Engine is an excellent manual that guides the beginner, step by step, through construction and testing of the single use, homemade engine. At every step, safety is stressed. The book is complete in that it covers mechanical construction, fuel mixing/loading, igniter construction/placement, protection for long term storage, and testing. An all around 5 star manual for the older hobbist. For younger rocketeers adult supervision is strongly recommended.
