Rocket Men (by Robert Kurson) … a story of true heroes

While not the typical book I read, I really enjoyed it. The author does a wonderful job of bringing the reader into the life of NASA astronauts and their families. I honestly felt like I was experiencing the emotions of those involved in the first trip to the moon. The technical details were informative but not overwhelming.

The men who were part of the Apollo 8 mission were brave and cared about their country, the future of space exploration, and being good representatives of NASA. The story of the astronauts’ background from their formative years to present day was interesting and made you care about each of them.

Such an amazing tale that takes you on a step-by-step adventure that will have you holding your breath in awe of the views seen from the capsule window…or in anticipation of whether these true heroes will survive their trip to the moon!
