Description

Jim Longuski joined Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1979 after earning a P. in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan. As a maneuver analyst and mission designer at JPL, Longuski helped plan NASA's Galileo Mission to Jupiter.

Jim Longuski joined Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1979 after earning a P. In 1988, Longuski began teaching astronautics at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. He has published over one hundred conference and journal articles on spacecraft dynamics and control, reentry theory, mission design, and space trajectory optimization.

Longuski decided to write what he calls a survival guide for rocket scientists. In this small book, Longuski uses humor and personal anecdotes to give engineers and scientists an edge in an industry in which one gets ahead as much on as on technical merits. If you are a rocket scientist, or want to become a rocket scientist, or know and care about a rocket scientist-then this book is for you, Longuski explains in his introduction.

The wisdom of the author should reach much wide audience beyond rocket scientists. The best time to read this book is when you are entering a grad school in any field where your work requires some cooperation of or collaboration with other students, staff, or people from outside institutions, but I think it is never too late to read it. I came across this book because one of my former roommate had it when I had hard time with my boss. I borrowed it and read it through quickly, but later I decided to buy a copy myself.

I had my years in a doctorate program in brain science. The labs are filled with politics, not of the scale discussed in this book, but lots of small politics related to shared equipment, facility, building maintenance people, etc., as well as resources like technician time. The worst of all, many professors are very poor leaders and they lack effective management skills. Also, if you read this book and look around in your institution, you'll get a very good sense of which professors are better bosses, because this book gives you strong suggestions of what kind of human qualities to look for, and you'll be surprised how few professors are good bosses. When you're starting a project, everyone looks like a nice person. It is when you have difficult challenges (for which your boss has no idea) that separates good bosses from bad ones.

If you want to achieve something, you need pragmatic skills including the kind of politics described in this book, combined with common sense understanding of human nature.

This is a very fun and informative read for anyone that is pursuing a degree and/or career path. It takes only a few hours to read and is written in such a way that the author seems to be having a conversation with you. I highly recommend this book!

100% recommend to aerospace majors in college

Overall I give this book a "thumbs up", but there were several passages where the author came across as overbearing and pompous. It seemed the reader was being shouted at rather than advised. The good outweighed the bad, so I do recommend it to all you "new hires" out there.

Has useful information for some students, as it does not cover all cases that students are in. Useful advice are cleared laid out in the chapters

Gift for a friend.

"Advice to Rocket Scientists" is an excellent guide to wading through your aerospace engineering career. It dwells on numerous tips for those in industry and for those in the academia.

I'd recommend it to other engineering disciplines too.
I recommend this book to all new engineers joining our group. Don't forget the Golden Rule guys.
