Starting chapter is a concise summary of an extraordinary life which included stints as fighter pilot and one of only 12 moon walkers. This background then informs the rather short (5.75 hour total) narrative which provides Aldrin's take on how to live life - reinforced by examples and stories from his past and current work. While the lessons sometimes seem basic ("show me your friends and I will show you your future”) most of life is about getting the basics right after all. Also as an older adult, I appreciated his focus on the importance of keeping and fostering a spirit of adventure and innovation all through life
The narrator did a good job trying to capture the authors voice from the book in his performance – though have to admit I did end up listening to it at 1.5X speed and one gets a better sense of the energy/enthusiasm the author has vs. the sometimes paced feel of reading.
Very welcome read and credit worthy.
Sometimes good to be reminded that the basic lessons are those best remembered.
Plenty of good stories to make it a good read for biography and space enthusiasts as well.

This book is written very accessibly and is full of fun stories and inspirational reminders. The feel is as though you are are visiting with Buzz himself. Thanks.

Great life story from Buzz, recommended listening about conducting your life when you really have reached the top
Alot appeals to me about this book, if your a big thinker with an open mind, want a better future for humanity then listen to Buzz a man that looked back at the whole globe, not many authors can give you that point of way.
