Nathan has become really interested in the space program. He love's to watch the HBO series From the Earth to the Moon and ask questions about absolutely everything that is happening. As we watched more, I came to realize how little I knew about the Gemini, Mercury, and Apollo space programs and I figured I should do some more homework. This book was a great way to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge and gave me an even deeper respect for dedication of all those people involved with the space race. I found this book to be a very enjoyable read. It goes into some technical details, but nothing I would characterize as intimidating for those people who aren't really into technology.
