Failure Is Not an Option: Mission Control from Mercury to Apollo 13 and Beyond (Thorndike Paperback Bestsellers)by Gene Kranz
Synopses & Reviews
Now in paperback comes the bestselling, firsthand account of the early days of the NASA space program through the eyes of the man who held it all together, the former flight director for the Apollo 11 lunar landing.
Book News Annotation:
Kranz, a former Air Force fighter pilot, was NASA's flight director from the start of the Mercury program. He worked on each of the Apollo missions, including the fatal Apollo 11 launch; the 1995 film Apollo 13 portrayed how Kranz led the rescue efforts of that crew. This trade paper reprint of Kranz's best-selling memoir comprises his own telling of the Apollo 13 story and much more from the space program's earliest years.
