Murray Leinster's "Operation: Outer Space" (novel, space opera, free): Party explores 3 earth-like worlds

Cover image of the novel Operation - Outer Space by Murray Leinster
It's not a bad read. But not among the better stories of author, either. Leave logic somewhere, & enjoy the roller-coaster with a mad scientist who can put together the first-ever FTL ship in a few weeks, a super-businessman, & some others in exploring 3 earth-like worlds in far-away star systems: a glacial world, a world with large cattle herds ready to be hunted, & a world that has never known life.
