How To Be a Rocket Scientist – the book is back in print!

Happy news for anyone who wants to blaze their own trail into a fun and rewarding career in aerospace or aviation!

“How To Be a Rocket Scientist: 10 Tips to Enter the Aerospace Field and Launch the Career of Your Dreams” has been republished! In both paperback and ebook formats!

Ready for a “reality check” on rocket science?

Every life journey is going to experience hardship, challenges, and setbacks. That happened again to me in May of 2021 when Amazon unilaterally and unexpectedly removed this book from its bookstore. My self-publishing account was terminated due to an alleged ownership dispute with two blank notebooks I had published in December 2020.

How To Be a Rocket Scientist contains 10 powerful tips that give you strategies and tactics for success in TODAY’S WORLD. It is a world of incredible and unprecedented opportunities.

There has never been a better time for future “rocket scientists”

For example, an entire world of people (experts), knowledge, and tools are now available to anyone with a computer and internet connection.

There are FREE and ONLINE world-class university courses on rocket science! You’ll learn about those in Tip #7: Use Free and Informal Education Resources.

There are people from every imaginable background and skillset who are a part of the “rocket science” community across the planet – and beyond! I worked in this industry for over 20 years, on projects ranging from sailplanes to high-performance military aircraft to hypersonic re-entry vehicles.

Many of these people, like me, are eager for others to join us. I hope that includes you! That’s why you’ll see that Tip #3 is to Associate With People in the Field.

We want you – and need you – to join us

Maybe this is your first step on that path. I invite you to explore other pages on this website. Type in some fun search terms for the 6+ years of blog posts and see what comes up.

When you want to gain the full benefit of all my knowledge and advice about pursuing a unique career in aerospace or aviation – one that is meant just for you – I hope you’ll read my book How To Be a Rocket Scientist.

Throughout my career, I have mentored and volunteered with countless others to foster their potential in a career of their dreams. Many of them asked for my advice about how to get a job. How to apply for a job. How to meet people who are already working in the field… What to learn to become a valuable candidate?

The 10 tips in this book will answer all of those questions, and more.

Resolve to take your next step and move forward

The book is now available again on Amazon here. It will also be available shortly in other online and offline stores such as Barnes & Noble, Target, Walmart, and local bookstores. You may have to ask them to order it, but that’s ok! Find the initiative, courage, and determination within yourself to put forth that effort! (If you aren’t willing to do that small amount of work for your future, I have some tough love for you.)

Remember I mentioned those challenges and setbacks? Everyone who is truly successful – whether they are doing rocket science or not – has had to deal with those issues and learn how to move on.

I still don’t have a self-publishing account on Amazon. They said it was terminated FOREVER. With no hearing or official process for a counter-response, an appeal, or reinstatement.

Well, I got this book back on Amazon anyway. It took several months, but I found a way.

If you found this website and are reading this message, I hope you appreciate the awesome opportunities that you have to live in today’s world with a new space renaissance underway. And a historic abundance of opportunities for you to define your own future, chart your own trajectory in life, and start moving forward on it.

There is much more happening in the “rocket science” world than just rocket science. There are hundreds of thousands of other people in this community who each have their unique role. Most of it is not “rocket science” per se. (That is why Tip #2 is to Expand Your Concept of Rocket Science.)

Take your next step in your unique journey and learn what is possible. I encourage you to learn how to be a rocket scientist.

Take care and take charge,

Brett Hoffstadt
