"Journalist Jay Barbree has reported on space travel since 1957, covering every American manned space mission. During his long association with the U.S. space program, Barbree became friends with astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, and had many personal conversations with him. In this absorbing biography, Barbree portrays Armstrong's whole life, focusing on the space race and his flying career (beginning as a jet pilot during the Korean War) through his last days as an astronaut. Their conversations also provide a glimpse of the very reserved astronaut's personality. Neil Armstrong draws on official records in addition to Barbree's interviews with him, and includes photographs, many of them previously unpublished." Biography and Memoir September 2014 newsletter
