Not like I need yet another harcover book to add the NASA library, but America in Space by Wendy Baker has evaded me. I'm looking to buy it new.

Any opinions regarding content and whether it's a worthwhile addition would be appreciated. Thanks.

Assuming this is the 1986 edition of 159 pages? I cannot find any reviews posted on Amazon.com.

If I were buying I think I'd go for the less expensive option of used.

Yep, it's as you described and nor can I find anything beyond the superficial.

I like my books new though I know I can pick it up cheaply in used format. I get the feeling there's little new in it that isn't covered by way of pictures in books such as "The Illustrated History of NASA", "SPACE", "Full Moon" and other coffee table sized publications.
