This book was a crisp look at NASA and that time. That it was written by one of my childhood heroes only makes it better.
The insight on the fragility of the earth, resounds loudly as a cautionary tale for our world today. Perhaps we should ship anyone in power to space to take a peek from afar, to see the frailty first hand.
Recommend to any space buff.
I can still recall sitting in front of the TV on that Sunday night in July 1969 and watching in wonder as Neil Armstrong placed his boots on the surface of the moon. After reading this memoir, I am gobsmacked by my new understanding of what it took for that amazing event to take place.

I read this book to celebrate the 50th anniversary and loved every bit of it, I was right there with you in your tin can and the story leading up to it.
