Burt Rutan's Race to Space: The Magician of Mojave and His Flying Innovations by Dan Linehan, Forewarded by Mike Melvill

Burt Rutan’s Race to Space showcases Rutan’s herculean efforts to do just that. His many aerospace innovations preceding his most recently conceived designs, SpaceShipTwo and WhiteKnightTwo, chronicle a progressive, step-by-step attempt to break barriers with engineering know-how and a wondrous imagination, all the while remaining on the forefront of the burgeoning private spaceflight industry. Rutan’s X Prize triumph and subsequent spacecraft designs are not a beginning, nor an end, but are steps in Burt Rutan’s continuing adventure to expand humanity’s presence beyond the Earth and into space.
