Delighted to have this well-documented out-of-print description of the Gemini program in my personal library. Combines technical detail with friendly writing style. Instills solid appreciation for the experimental nature of manned spaceflight, its obstacles and achievements, leading to Apollo/Saturn 5. Those inspired by the triumph of Apollo 13 will enjoy this account of the Gemini program.
