5.0 out of 5 stars Great Apollo era Autobiography, 6 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Falling to Earth: An Apollo 15 Astronaut's Journey to Earth (Hardcover)
Al Worden is one of the least well-known Apollo era astronauts - he was a member of the ground-breaking scientific crew that was Apollo 15, commanded by Dave Scott, with Jim Irwin as LMP and Worden as CMP. Sadly, Apollo 15 is probably best known for the "stamp scandal" that engulfed the crew and left them in ignominy for many years. In this warts and all story, Al Worden, tells a remarkable tale of what it was like to be an astronaut in the hey day of the Moon missions; it is told in a very easy going style (and having had the privilege of meeting Al), you can hear his voice through the words on the page. I have read many of the Apollo era autobiographies and would say that this is certainly in my top-five - along with those of Walt Cunningham (Apollo 7), Tom Stafford (Apollo 10), Deke Slayton (ASTP) and Mike Collins (Apollo 11). Great stuff, the Right Stuff!
