    The best and most entertaining book on the space program

    Not only did this book provide the more insight into the space program than any other I have read, but it also was immensely entertaining. Deke Slayton obviously had a brilliant sense of humor. I was of course very interested in the historical content of the book, but what made the book impossible to put down was that I just wanted to keep reading to see what he would say next. (Previously I'd never finished a book in less than 5 months. I read this one in 1 week.) His account is very candid and incredibly honest, and he does not in the least hold back in his assessment of anyone or anything. I'm sure you'll find these comments as amusing as I did. Definitely read this one!

    READ DEKE!

    DEKE! was a great book about an amazing man. He is responsible for a large portion of the sucess of NASA. Deke is an incredible rolemodel in his persistance, courage, and leadership. I would highly recommend this book to anyone with any interest in the space program, or anyone looking to read about the trials of a great man.
