    Extremely Disappointed - I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    I received this book for Christmas after seeing it in the store several weeks earlier. I wish there had been a copy available at my local store to view because had I looked at it in the store I would have not wanted this book. To begin with there are 40 – count them – FORTY pages that are completely blank! Nothing! Once I got past that disappointment, I focused on the photos that were there. The photos start off well. I will say that there are some really spectacular launch photos of STS-133 as well as some very nice detail photos of the orbiters themselves. (But again, the positioning of the photos and subsequent waste of space in the book is objectionable.) After that? You get several photos of nothing but smoke, photos of the VAB ceiling, the flag on a wall near the VAB ceiling. (I took the same photo with my handheld digital camera in September this year when I went on a tour.) Also included: The far wall of the VAB with the tip of the External Tank poking up from the bottom of the photo, used space suit gloves, several photos of various space suit components, and my personal favorite – a sealed bag of M&M’s – I believe there are 21 peanut M&M’s in the bag. I struggled to find a correlation between a bag of M&M’s and the last launches of the shuttle program. There is an oblique reference in the introduction to Russian Cosmonauts and their obsession with M&M’s, buts that’s the only correlation I found. Cynicism aside, I would have been ok with the quantity of photos and in large measure the choice of photos if not for so many blank pages. That really angered me. I feel as if I only received 2/3 of a book. The bottom line… I had high expectations for this book as a tribute to such a great, albeit flawed technical achievement. This work missed the mark. It is really a disappointment that I would not recommend to anyone.

    As someone who loves to take pictures and a lover of picture loo

    As someone who loves to take pictures and a lover of picture looking this book was very well done. My teenage son who is into science moved the read and pictures.
