Anthony Young graduated from Pratt Institute and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Design. He began writing shortly after graduating, initially in the area of automotive history. He specialized in engine histories and the cars they powered. These books included the Chevrolet Small-block and Big-Block V-8s, the Chrysler Hemi, and several other books. He wrote an article for Automobile Quarterly on the design, development and use of the Lunar Roving Vehicle used on Apollo 15, 16 and 17. This led to a book contract with Springer/Praxis for the book Lunar and Planetary Rovers. He followed up with The Saturn V F-1 Engine - Powering Apollo Into History. His articles have appeared in Space Times magazine and QUEST - The History of Spaceflight Quarterly. He has been a regular contributor to the online weekly The Space Review since 2009.
