dated scifi

The premise for this book struck me as potentially very interesting but I'm afraid for me it reads more as a very, very dated scifi story. It's almost like an alternate history scifi novel but stuck in a pre-moon-landing era where rocket ships are cones with three legs and people still weren't even sure what the moon would be like. The author seems to strive to base things in science but it winds up stuck in late 50's speculation.

I'd recommend passing on this book and sticking with the more imaginative and less dated works by Heinlein or Niven.
