'Exciting and moving' DAILY EXPRESS 'Thrilling. Forty years on, the raw facts of the adventure remain beguiling and the bravery of the astronauts compelling' SUNDAY TIMES 'Buzz Aldrin might not have been the first man to walk on the Moon, but of all the astronauts to have been there, none of them has articulated their predicament with quite such wisdom and sensitivity' MAIL ON SUNDAY
About the Author
On 20 July 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong landed their lunar module on the Sea of Tranquility and became the first humans to walk on the Moon. Aldrin has since been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and more than 50 other awards and medals from the United States and other countries. He holds a doctorate in astronautics from MIT. Since retiring from the US Air Force and NASA, Dr Aldrin has remained at the forefront of efforts to ensure a continued leading role for America in manned space exploration. He founded a rocket design company, Starcraft Boosters, Inc., and the ShareSpace Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to opening the doors to space tourism for all people. Buzz and his wife, Lois, live in Los Angeles. Ken Abraham is a New York Times bestselling author, known around the world for his collaborations with celebrities and high-profile public figures.

watching the exploits of these Men as they pushed the Boundaries of Human exploration. The act of planting men on the
Moon & bringing them safely back must rank as one of Mankind's Greatest Moments - Pity the Conspiracy idiots continue to
deny the evidence & wallow in their Foolishness denying this....
Anyway. Buzz Aldrin WAS the 2nd Man to set foot on the Moon, and his viewpoint on what it meant, and how his
life then spiralled out of control once he was back on Earth ( and had no goals to aim for) makes for a fascinating insight into
his life. Very enjoyable, worth a read, and told in a frank & honest manner. Really enjopyed this Book....
I was back in the 60's reliving these events once again.
