Craig Nelson is the author of four previous books, including The First Heroes and Let's Get Lost. His writings have appeared in Salon, The New England Review, Blender, Genre, and a host of other publications. He was an editor at HarperCollins, Hyperion, and Random House for almost twenty years and has been profiled by Variety, Interview, Manhattan, Inc., and Time Out.
Author Craig Nelson focuses on the rocket builders and the men who rode their inventions to the moon as he tells the story of the U.S. Space Program. Richard McGonagle sounds like he was there. His clear, slightly gruff voice sounds full of belief and pride in the program while hitting the information home. He's bemused as he talks about the celebrity status of the astronauts at the height of the space race and solemn as he tells of the risks and casualties. Nelson's account concentrates on the glory years, but takes listeners to the present and future as well. The anecdotes, brought alive through McGonagle's narration, make this an entertaining and emotional history. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
