This book is a rough read, unless you are terribly interested in the history of the Voyager Program. This book covers from the programs roots in White Sands Missile Range where they were shooting off V2 rockets to the termination shock finally being reached by Voyager 2. I think where the book suffers most is the endless lists of people who worked on Voyager without giving much personality to them. The bio's say where they were educated how they came to be involved in voyager and not much else. No personal details, no quaint stories, these people are mere cardboard cut outs taking turns on the helm of Voyager. I personally enjoyed the book for the most part. Especially the portions about the science gleaned from this grand tour but I am apprehensive of recommending it to your average reader.
