Interesting read - but more about the actual accident is available online
16 May 2018
This was an interesting read, covering more the details of the immediate aftermath of the accident, the debris collection and the process of putting together the pieces.
It does tend to get a little 'samey' - perhaps a harsh comment, but theres only so much additional information that can be added to the premise of "it was a difficult and time consuming search".
Also slightly disappointing was the coverage of the actual crash details itself - it is covered but very briefly - I appreciate the context is the human side of the recovery, but still would have been good to have had more.
The book does actually reference the very good report done much later on by NASA astronauts around survivability and the ACES suits - this is available online from NASA and contains the full timeline, breakdown and technical findings of the crash itself - without being morbid.
So - if interested in the specific subject of the recovery effort, worth a read - if actually interested in the technical details and causes of the crash, seek out the online report.
