"Paul Dickson re-creates the fire, furor, frustration, and flamboyance of the early Space Age. Sputnik's arrival set off a tidal wave in the affairs of men."
Vinton Cerf, coinventor of the Internet
"Dickson's book not only presents a thoughtful analysis of the impact Sputnik had on the dawning of the Space Age, but also serves as a valuable resource for understanding the historical context of the debates now taking place on issues such as National Missile Defense and the future of space."
Susan Eisenhower, President of the Eisenhower Institute
"Sputnik is an insightful look at the way Sputnik changed the world, especially the United States -boosting its education and research. Sputnik essentially awakened America and started a space era."
Sergei N. Krushchev, author of "Nikita Krushchev: creation of a superpower" and Senior Fellow of the Watson Institute of International Studies
