Reviews

"In his career as an astronaut, Thomas Stafford saw it all: Gene Cernan's fogged up pressure helmet, the mountains of the moon oh-so-close, a Soviet handshake in orbit. Stafford was truly one of those few who stood on the shoulders of giants and made history."--Tom Hanks

"As American flight commander of the first ever rendezvous-in-space with the Soviets, Tom Stafford started raising the Iron Curtain. A great talent, a great career--and still involved!"--Senator John Glenn

"An intimate portrayal of space policy, especially its sometimes cantankerous, sometimes tranquil, but always interesting interactions between USA and USSR."--Roger D. Launius, NASA Chief Historian
