About the Author

Deke Slayton was one of the first seven Mercury astronauts--and he might have been the first American in space. Instead, he became the first chief of American Astronaut Corps. It was Deke Slayton who selected the crews who flew the Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab missions. It was Deke Slayton who made Neil Armstrong the first man on the moon.


"Deke Slayton was probably the single most important man in the U.S. manned space program.....Slayton was a genuine American hero." --Stars and Stripes "No on can really understand the manned space flight of the '60s without understanding Deke's role in it. This is his story in his won words, and it often seems as if Deke were there in person. no nonsense, no excuses, just get on with the mission." --Frank Borman "Deke! is a 'must read' for those who remember that most exciting of night and for those not yet born who want to learn about one of the 20th century's most thrilling moments." --Rocky Mountain News
