A key insider's view of the US Space Program from the early days to the end of the Apollo space program. Kranz's straightforward style is professional, forthcoming and passionate about the importance of space program. His chapters on Apollo 11 and Apollo 13 are especially noteworthy.

Oh, and I enjoyed the explanation for his wearing of the vests, including the fact that it was his wife who made them for him.
