This book tells the story of the NASA/JPL Voyager Mission from it's beginning until some point in both craft's trips to the heliosheath. It would be equally valid to say that this book is about the history of exploration from Henry the Navigator to the present with special emphasis on the NASA/JPL Voyager mission. For that reason a person could complain that it makes too much reference to that history.(Next paragraph.) I was pleased with the blend of both stories. There are also plenty of references to other works, if a person wants more detail.

I am disappointed in the pictures; I thought I would see many more wondrous images than the handful included. I am not really interested in the comparisons to earthly explorations and discoveries of bygone eras. I don't care for the author's somewhat pompous style of writing. Yet for all the shortcomings, the story of the two Voyagers is hard to put down and kept me in awe and suspense.
