COMARA.org - COMSAT Alumni & Retirees Association
by David Whelan
My book, The Rise and Fall of COMSAT, was just published by Palgrave-Macmillan. The price is outrageous: $115. It is available on Amazon for $98. The promo code below only works on the Palgrave.com website-still $80.50. They seem to be targeting a "captive" market: research libraries.
I think I get a few dollars for each copy-which I would gladly donate to COMARA. Although there is an exception for "discounted sales." The "Origins" book netted me just about $1000 for about 4000 hours of work. Don't you love academia? Could I get hired as an engineer at my advanced age?
I will see some of you at AIAA Space 2014 in San Diego
Best to all

Palgrave set up a discount promo code (30%) that COMARA members can use. Use the promo code PMCOMARA2014 when they check out on Palgrave.com. Just FYI, it won't be activated until next week.
