The highlight of this book are the four technical features, including a 30-page technical description of the modern Soyuz TMA-M, a look at rendezvous and docking techniques, a brief history of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, and a summary of the Progress cargo freighter. These parts are really the meat of the book - the bits that make it a "workshop manual" and not just a decent history. Dozens of detailed technical drawings from the original Soyuz manuals are included, along with close-up views of spacecraft components and detailed descriptions of how the different systems work.
Overall, the Soyuz "workshop manual" makes a very good, although not superb, inclusion into the rather small library of English-language books on the Soviet & Russian manned space program. Visually, the book is superb, with plenty of line drawings, diagrams, historical photographs, specially created CGI illustrations, and color views of Soyuz hardware. David Baker's writing has improved over the years, and he strikes a good balance between historical background and technical details here. My main gripe is that it ends rather abruptly - the focus here mainly being on the early years of the Soyuz program, the last 28 years getting a 9-page wrap-up at the end. This might be a reflection of the craft's overall reliability, or of editorial constraints on the part of Haynes.
Recommended, with a couple of minor reservations, for serious manned spaceflight buffs.
I understand a lot of information was secret back in the day and some parts may still be secret- so it hard to get information that makes sense. This book did a great job with the information available. It's simple and easy to read. If you are looking for a lot of detail information of each system this is not that kind of book. It's general in nature but at an adult level.
I worked on the Apollo spacecraft as a Electronic/electrical Technician and later as an research engineer. I wanted to compare their spacecraft with ours. I attached a photo of me by Apollo 15 at the Downey Apollo factory taken in April of 1967.
It is interesting- this Soyuz spacecraft was design to go to the moon but never made it. But 900 of these vehicles were made and are still being made to service the International Space Station while our Apollo spacecraft and Space Shuttle are in museums. Oh Well.
Anyway this book is excellent.
As an enthusiastic reader of the Owner's Workshop Manual NASA Mars Rovers, I had great expectations about the book.
First, let's start by the positive aspects. They are many photos, of good quality, as well as many schematics and functional diagrams, with some needed Latin characters transcription.
Also, units are translated in metric units, when needed. There is here a lack of consistency, the Soyuz having been designed in metrics, this should be the unit of reference for this text, to avoid rounding problems and the imperial units be provided in parenthesis for readers using imperial units.
The book is written in a narrative style. The first 67 pages are devoted to the history of the soviet space program. The Soyuz development is described in details, but it fails to give a clear view of the evolution of the design, a simple flowchart, as found in other books would have helped.
Missing are, recap tables, with a list of all Soyuz launches, with date, model number, launch weight, and the specific of the mission, and the docking target, when appropriate. This has to be extracted from the text.
Also, some comparison table with a spec sheet of the different models and variants would have been of help.
Globally, in interesting book, they are not that many available in english on the subject.
