It's a funny title but this book is really informative
The author is highly qualified as an astronaut and a former CIA employee. He talks both about a detailed overview of how things are at NASA and his person experience. It was touching how he had to struggle to get his resume noticed, how he was in awe when he met an astronaut beforehand on a plane, and I felt like I was catching up on what's been going since the first rocket landed on the moon. Unfortunately, the news doesn't focus so much on this state of the art industry, where as you can't get higher in technology than space exploration and future colonization. Unfortunaely, though there was a great thrust in the education movement during Sputnick, must people are sort of down on what their not up on, so most school children and adults keeping up with the news in general don't get much of a chance to get a comprehensive view unless, their either in the space program or really make an effort to try to be educated about such things. I think this is a great starting point. We only need to be humble about ourselves and that can be a great way to form a foundation, realizing we don't know it all and that an overview is a good foundation.Was this review helpful?
