5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, entertaining, and fascinating., 6 July 2012
This is a very informative and also entertainingly written account of the very first person to travel into space, that I would highly recommend. It is a fascinating read, with new, original research undertaken within Russia and from Russian-language-only sources: this is something that few other English-language books about this era have done. It's new and original, which makes it so refreshing.

Andrew Jenks not only gives a great description of Gagarin's life and flight, he also makes a concerted effort to get behind the myths that have grown up since around the man. I learned a lot, and it is a book I will enjoy rereading.
