Customer Review

on 2 September 2009
For anyone interested in the space race and also military aviation this is an essential purchase.

In addition to covering the life and personality of Neil Armstrong it provides a wonderfully detailed look at his Gemini and Apollo missions with contributions from many of the other personalities involved - Aldrin, Collins, Scott, Cernan, Kranz, Slayton, Bean etc etc. Not only that, it provides another angle on the community of astronauts and the politics within NASA and strives to reveal the truth behind many of the myths that surround the quest to land on the moon and the mission itself.

It's a weighty paperback but an easy read and only concentrates on technical detail where it would be an omission not to.

Highly recommended and most enjoyable.
