Fun to listen to, learned something too

This audiobook is actually about how to get a carreer in space. I'm not planning to, but it's fun to listen to this book anyway. It tells you about the challenges of spaceflight and how rockets work. Maybe the book is slightly out of date, as it assumes the Constellation program is still going to the moon. And NASA actually has a budget. But that doesn't hurt the story that much.
I hope the narrator does more audiobooks, because I've enjoyed his narration.
Content 4/5, narration: 5/5, "in-car-listenability": 5/5
