Summary
"Everything written about Armstrong's life and flights has been from the outside looking in; Jay Barbree is the only person Armstrong trusted to share close personal details about his inspiring life story. Working from his years of notes, and with the Armstrong family, Jay Barbree has written the definitive biography of America's most famous astronaut and one of our greatest modern heroes. Armstrong has entrusted Barbree with details of his personal life, including his two marriages and the death of his baby daughter. And, of course, there is the inside story of an extraordinary career, from the time Armstrong flew in combat missions in the Korean War and then flew a rocket plane called X-15 to the edge of the atmosphere, to when he saved his Gemini 8 by flying the first emergency return from Earth orbit and then flew Apollo 11 to the moon's Sea of Tranquillity. Through his friendship with Neil and his dedicated research, Barbee brings us the most accurate account of his friend's life, the book he and the famed astronaut planned together for twenty years.--Back cover
