Anybody have any recommended reads for basic aerospace engineering?

Question by dbraymond07: Anybody have any recommended reads for basic aerospace engineering?
I have a high school knowledge of physics and basic calculus. Am not going to college for a year but I want to start studying aerospace on my own ( I plan on majoring in it). Can anybody recommend some interesting, readable books in aeronautical engineering that will give me a beginners workable knowledge in the field. I don’t know any engineering now so any books are welcome even if they’ve nothing to to do with planes i.e. building a battery fan, basics of wiring etc.

  1. Yes, if you are interested in spacecraft/rockets I recommend:
    Understanding Space: An Introduction to Astronautics
    by Jerry Jon Sellers

    Its a great book for giving you the basics of the physics behind aerospace and the engineering principles behind it

  2. If you’ve got high school level physics and calculus, you can handle “Introduction to Flight” by John Anderson. It mainly focuses on airplanes, but also has a few chapters on space vehicles. It’ll give you a pretty good idea of what to expect, too; If you don’t like the book, you’ll probably hate aerospace.

  3. “Fear of Flying” the 9/11crew of Flight 90. It’s an excellent read. Also, my favorite, called,
    ‘The Day We Blew Up’ about the space shuttle that disintegrated in mid-air, with regular civilians on it, such as the teacher. That’s all I can think of at the moment. I hope my suggestions help you.
