Editorial Reviews

Review

"Heart-gripping.... So brilliantly told one can almost smell the perspiration in Houston Mission Control." -- Charles Petit, San Francisco Chronicle, July 9, 1989

"Marvelous.... Captures the mood and spirit of the people who found a way to the moon. -- Michael Collins, The New York Times Book Review, July 16, 1989

"Rich, densely packed and beautifully told.... Filled with cliffhangers, suspense and spine-tingling adventure." -- Charles Sheffield, Washington Post Book World, July 9 1989
