Review

"A fascinating life."--Space Review

"An intensely enjoyable book."--AmericaSpace.com

"If you have been waiting for a book from the only moonwalker without one you will not be disappointed with Forever Young. John W. Young, with James R. Hansen, has written the epic story if his life not only of adventure, but service to his country and inspiration for the future."--Ad Astra

"An incredible read, fast paced at times with great insight into Young's mind as he takes you with him as he soars into earth orbit and upon the vast ocean of space."--Examiner.com

From the Back Cover

"Young was the best engineer and best test pilot of all the astronauts of the early space age. Without question, he was the most important astronaut of the space shuttle era. He was the best ever chief of the Astronaut Office in Houston. Nobody matched him."--Alan L. Bean"As the only astronaut to fly the Gemini, Apollo, "and" Space Shuttle ships, John's passion for safety was the signature emphasis (even obsession) of his career."--Glynn S. Lunney"Young has been at the center of human spaceflight since the mid-1960s, and his revealing autobiography speaks to internal issues, external possibilities, and the commitment of this individual to the movement of humanity beyond earth."--Roger D. Launius"A fascinating life."--"Space Review""An intensely enjoyable book."--"AmericaSpace.com""If you have been waiting for a book from the only moonwalker without one you will not be disappointed with "Forever Young."
