Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Though a famous, much chronicled astronaut, Neil Armstrong wanted to write his own story with the help of NBC reporter Barbree, who’d covered every one of his missions. But Armstrong, who died in 2012, was such a self-effacing man, he couldn’t bring himself to write a book focusing on him alone. He’d talked to Barbree for years about the chief passions of his life, flying and his family. Drawing on those long talks and with the cooperation of Armstrong’s family, Barbree offers an intimate portrait of a man grateful to have spent his life doing what he loved. Armstrong talked to Barbree about his two marriages, the death of his baby daughter, the close fellowship among pilots and astronauts, and the astonishing experiences of his space exploration missions. Timed to coincide with the forty-fifth anniversary of the Apollo 11 space launch, Barbree’s book includes many never-before-seen photos, a look back at the competition to win the space race with the Soviets, and Armstrong’s vision for the future of space exploration. --Vanessa Bush

Review

"Michael Prichard is his usual solid self, not adding false emotion to a story that is filled with excitement. At the same time, he varies his tone and pacing to keep the narrative flowing." ---AudioFile
