    Its a great story but has a great deal of esoteric vocab and endless acronyms.
  • Excellent Memoir

    Learned much about the personal side of the man who, to most of America, is the face of NASA's Mission Control. Most focus is naturally on the Apollo program, but fair time is given to the earlier Mercury & Gemini programs. Gene openly shares the pain & horror of the Apollo 1 tragedy, and how the NASA team rebounded to become even stronger. Would've liked to hear more about overcoming the Challenger accident, as I know he was in mission control that day too, but little is mentioned. Overall, I just loved it.
  • Great read

    An al around great book about all the details of manned spaceflight from the first days of the Mercury program through splashdown of Apollo 17. Kranz does a fine job of pointing out and praising every person who played a critical role in any mission. There are a lot of names in this book and the author had nothing but great things to say about any of them, a refreshing attitude in this day and age. The book leaves you with a sad feeling considering the current state of this country's attitude towards space. Fortunately there's enough passion in the storytelling to make you hope and believe that there are people out there who want the country to get back to achieving it's full potential as a world leader in space as opposed to just hitching a ride when some other country wants to go. Overall a great read with plenty of details that are more fun to consume through a book than through a google search.
