    Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America's manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA's Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race.

    "A must have for any fan of man's journey to the mo"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. I enjoyed learning about the space program from someone in the trenches, not a textbook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Failure Is Not an Option?

    Mr. Kranz's account of Apollo 1 & 13. Also his epilogue


    What about Danny Campbellā€™s performance did you like?

    Great voice and delivery. told the story well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to mention here


    Any additional comments?

    If you ever wanted to know what truly happened in mission control through Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo, the good the bad and the ugly, get this book.
