    The best of the Apollo astronaut books

    For anybody interested in the early space program from Gemini through Apollo, this is the book for you. Most of the Apollo astronaut books walk the thin line between personal recollection and technical detail a bit haphazardly, mostly straying towards the personal side of things. Not so with this book-Mike Collins is not afraid to list off, for example, some of the commands he sent to the Agena satellite on Gemini 10. Not only does he tell you the commands, though, he explains exactly how to input them, what they would do, and the entire control sequences. His memory for detail is incredible, and that is what makes this book so great-the unbelievable detail.

    A Real Space Odyssey

    Mike Collins has written the most arresting account of Spaceflight ever. His experiences as an Air Force Pilot and NASA Astronaut are adventures as great and notable as the conquest of Mt. Everest. He tells the story of the Moon Race with technical seriousness and warm humor that gives the reader the impression of actually being in Space to see the sights, sounds and feelings of the extraterrestrial realm. Space Enthusiasts and Adventure Fans alike NEED to have this book in their home libraries. 'Carrying the Fire' is a GREAT book.
