The intimate, definitive biography of Neil Armstrong's inspiring life story written by one of America's great space journalists. Everything written about Armstrong's life and flights has been from the outside looking in; Jay Barbree is the only person Neil Armstrong trusted to share close personal details of his life. Through his friendship with Neil and his dedicated research, Barbree provides the inside story of an extraordinary career, from flying combat missions in the Korean War to commanding the Apollo 11 mission to the moon's Sea of Tranquility. He also details Armstrong's personal life, including his two marriages and the tragic death of his baby daughter. Working from years of notes, and with the Armstrong family, Jay Barbree brings us the definitive biography of America's most famous astronaut and one of our greatest modern heroes.
