Description
"To date, everything written about Armstong's life and flights has been written from the outside looking in; Barbree is the only person whom Neil Armstrong trusted to share close personal details about his inspiring life story. Working from his years of notes, and with the full cooperation of the Armstrong family, Barbree has written the definitive biography of America's most famous astronaut and one of our greatest modern heroes. Much has already been written about Armstrong and the major players who helped him fly to the moon, but he wanted this book to emphasize his two passions--family and flight. Barbree and Armstrong discussed everything, from his two marriages and the death of his baby daughter, to his love of flying, the war years and of course, his time in space. The book, timed to coincide with the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch and full of never-before-seen photos, includes many personal details that have never before been written, such as what Armstrong really felt when he took that first step on the moon, what life in NASA was like, his relationships with the other astronauts, and what he felt the future of space exploration should be"--
A definitive portrait of the pioneering astronaut draws on personal notes and interviews with his family to discuss Armstrong's life in NASA, his emotions when he first set foot on the moon, and his thoughts on the future of space exploration.

Yet shy of fame and never one to steal the spotlight, Armstrong was always reluctant to discuss his personal side of events. Here for the first time is the definitive story of Neil's life of flight he shared for five decades with a trusted friend-Jay Barbree. Barbree writes about Neil's three passions-flight, family, and friends. This is the inside story of Neil Armstrong from the time he flew combat missions in the Korean War, to when he saved his Gemini 8 by flying the first emergency return from Earth orbit, to when he flew Apollo 11 to the moon's Sea of Tranquility. Through his friendship with Neil and his dedicated research, Barbree brings us the most accurate account of his friend's life, the book he and the famed astronaut planned together for twenty years., Neil Armstrong :a life of flight /Jay Barbree., Neil Armstrong :a life of flightJay Barbree., New York :Thomas Dunne Books,2014., Prichard, Michael, Project Apollo (U.S.), Read by Michael Prichard., Science / Astronomy., Space flight to the moon, TL789.85.A75B37 2014, Unabridged., [United States]:Tantor Audio ,2014., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ttm_9781494524029_180.jpeg, n-us---zmo----, online resourcecr, pcc, spoken wordspw, text, unmediated, volume, xix, 362 pages :illustrations ;25 cm
