This is one of the best books ever. I listened to the 44 plus hours in about a week. Thought about the book for a few days, and then listened to it again. The book follows no formula, is multi-toned, and is nothing like anything else I’ve ever encountered. I can’t imagine anyone but William Dufris as the narrator.
If there was an abridged version, I would recommend it more. As a general rule, I like long books. In fact it is one of my search criterion. But this is the rare book that would have been better if it were about half as long.
First, is't not the original book, which I assumed it was. Rather is a number of disjointed excerpts, interviews, and sound bites, with lackluster attempts at comedy. I took away nothing I did not know.
It is poor value for the cost. If the price we $3.95, I probably would not return it.
I don't knows since I read technical stuff.
Of course Apollo 11 is the most memorable. While the book essentially starts with the launch of the moon-landing mission, it digresses a number of times to cover tangential elements, facts, and stories. Deciding the most memorable moment is like deciding the most memorial moment of you child’s birth.
