[aero/astrodynamics] Looking for a book recommendation

  1. Nov 10, 2013 #1
    I apologize is this isn't the best place to put this question.

    I'm just looking for a book recommendation. I am a senior electronics engineering student and I would like to learn about space flight. A recommendation for a technical book on aero/astrodynamics, rocket fundamentals, satellites, etc.. Pretty much anything geared toward space from an engineering standpoint would be much appreciated.

    Fundamentals of Astrodynamics by Bate, Mueller and White
    Probably the best beginner's book.

    Dover's series on engineering has a few. Space Dynamics by William Teyrrell Thomson along with the one recommended above. You can find them both fairly cheap.

    Both books listed are excellent, and not just for beginners. Another good book is by Vallado. I forget the title but is is very lengthy.
