I felt good reading this book. It reads like a personal letter sent from the great moon man himself. And in a world that seems so full of endless negative thinking, this is a much needed thing. The book, therefore, arrives with perfect timing; optimism is woven into its fabric. If your sails are sinking low, or your batteries need a jump start, then this book is a perfect remedy. Not that the story is all good news. There were many downs in Buzz Aldrin’s life, but he was determined to overcome them with just as many ups. The author reminds us that, in his words, progress is not always linear, sometimes zigzagging is necessary to reach a goal. Time and again he encountered failures, learned from them, even laughed at them, and then overcame the stumbling blocks with perseverance and moved on to victory.
Use the internet to see things described. Like the F-86 Sabre jets he flew.
Very generous accolades given to his fellow astronauts and flyers, especially the fallen like Ed White, Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee on Apollo 1.
Interesting episode while a cadet at West Point. He sees a student cheating. Does he remain silent or adhere to the honor code?
On a lighter note, I might add, never offer your Phobos to a President who thinks it’s for keeps. (there’s a nice glossy photo that goes with this episode).
Also, one has to wonder what happened to the three blue plastic bags that Buzz Aldrin tossed out of the Gemini 12 spacecraft. Let’s just hope the three plastic satellites burned up on reentry.
Somewhere between mirth and serious, we get a great summary of the punch heard around the world/moon.
Also, Buzz Aldrin addresses his enthusiastic desire for the space program to reach out for the planet Mars.
a definite five star review for a man who walked on the moon.
Thank you to Mr. Aldrin for this book. Thank you for EVERYTHING you do and continue to do.
