Review

Marvelous....Captures the mood and spirit of the people who found a way to the moon.

-- "Michael Collins, Apollo 11 astronaut, New York Times Book Review"<br ><br >

A dramatic, behind-the-scenes account of America's ten-year race to the moon. A highly satisfying tale, rich, densely packed and beautifully told.

-- "Washington Post Book World"<br ><br >

Heart-gripping...So brilliantly told one can almost smell the perspiration in Houston Mission Control.

--"San Francisco Chronicle"

An absorbing story.

--"Publishers Weekly"

A fast-paced and perceptive look at the people behind one of the most daunting technological feats of the twentieth century...An inspiring and informative chronicle.

--"Kirkus Reviews"
