Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon
Caffection Mariah Byron's review
Feb 06, 2010
Aldrin must be the genuine article if this memoir is to be believed. He must also have been a bag of snakes after his historic trip. In fact, it appears the real trip came after the moon landing. Made me wonder if there isn't something to the green cheese theory. But a great read nonetheless, filled with much lunar-trivia, and selenological data I never knew. Plus, Aldrin is truly the master of orbital mechanics. Slow down to catch up? Who knew?
