The author presents a detailed history of the changes in management attitudes at NASA after the Apollo moon landings. After the "Success at Any Cost" attitude of the Apollo missions, NASA had to come up with new programs, at the same time changing the way they approached them. This book presents the workshops and outlines of the new "cost-conscious" NASA.
