This is one of the best books I have listened to on Audible! It is a detailed, yet fast moving history of the space program and the 1960's. The author introduces and develops the key players in the space program, like Frank Borman and Gus Grissom. You quickly 'get to know them' and see the unfolding drama of the ups and downs of the program through their eyes. Even though you know the outcome, it is still a very suspenseful book and it provides great detail, without being dense.
The reader's performance is excellent and an interview with Frank Borman and select transmissions between Houston and Apollo 8 are included as a bonus.
Highly recommend this book!

If your heart doesn't swell with pride you are not breathing. Where did those days go?
