4.0 out of 5 stars a good read, 2 Dec. 2010

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Countdown: An Autobiography (Hardcover)
Frank Borman is best remembered as the commander of Apollo 8 which circled the moon with Jim Lovell and Bill Anders. He also set a record 14 day flight in Gemmini 7.

The book is well written and gives a good insight into the determined and stubborn character necessary to make it as an astronaut.

I have read most of the astronaut biographies and I found myself liking Borman very much and enjoying the writing style. Well worth a read if you like the Apollo space programme.

5.0 out of 5 stars BORMAN REVIEW, 8 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Countdown: An Autobiography (Hardcover)
This is a great book... However, this book is about Frank Borman.. not just Apollo!! It moves into the world of FB after Apollo... Which for me was very interesting. So much so i have even bought and read a couple of follow on books about FB career.

A man is more than a moon shot!! FANTASTIC BOOK
