Reaching Escape Velocity

I love to read. Mostly about technical subjects but frequently about the exploits of others who do what I consider to be really cool things. One such guy is Steve Roberts. He once spent a few years of his life building an outrageous, high tech bicycle called BEHEMOTH then rode it around the country. 17,000 miles of riding. He's on to building a high tech microship now.

This week I got a copy of Steve's book Reaching Escape Velocity. So far it's a great read but it's not about technology per se. It's about how to launch gonzo engineering projects with the help of sponsors, volunteers, and a little help. Details of the book are here along with order info.
