I enjoyed this book more as it went on. However, and I mention this point from the standpoint of I am providing an honest review based on my experience of this book. The narrator, although very good in delivery, had a slight speech impediment. As much as I am not at all against this or critical of it, it drove me up the wall to the point that I sped up the book to 1.75x just to get it over with. If you struggle with listening to things like that, then maybe try it and if you can't handle it, then return the book. Overall the book is well written and detailed, and tells the story of the less glamorous side of the space race, other than just the moon shots and other such things.
Does a good job of showing the technical challenges, with enough painting of the backdrop e.g. inter-service rivalry, presidential preferences etc. Does a very good job of articulating the parallel progression of technology,
It does not delve deep into the human experiences, and personal battles, which leaves it slightly dry, but gains it clarity.
