The autobiography of astronaut John Young.
John W. Young walked on the Moon. His peers called him the "astronaut's astronaut." He tells the story of his two Gemini flights, his two Apollo missions, the first-ever Space Shuttle flight, and the first Spacelab mission. He portrays astronauts as ordinary human beings and NASA as an institution with the same ups and downs as other major bureaucracies. And he frankly discusses the risks of space travel, including what went wrong with the Challenger and Columbia shuttles.
