      I received a free copy of this e book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for a review If you liked the biographies of Chris Kraft and Gene Kranz, you will love this book The book attempts to tell the stories of the people who were part of Mission Control, but were never featured in a book or movie You will get to hear from some of the recognized MC guys like Glenn Lunney, Sy Liebergot and John Aaron but you will also get to know of the others who were there as well The authors do a [...]

      Other than Mr Kranz s autobiography, this is by far the best account I ve read of Mission Control in Houston From the start of Mercury through to the shuttle era, this book is chock full of personal stories, accurate recollections from dozens of flight controllers, and transcripts of official tapes Every mission in detail, along with the stories of almost every controller There probably is no better recorded history of those times in manned space flight.If you are an Apollo era space nut, and lo [...]

      Wonderful period of time to write about but the language used by authors is way too religious Their approach is so reverent it s just hard to read with a straight face I know the authors are genuine in their respect but the language verges on parody and their uncritical reporting of the stories leaves much to be desired as an attempt at historical record of anything.I want to read about the facts and think this is awesome I don t want to read this is awesome, praise the Lord and wonder how rose [...]

      Loved it great to read about the people behind the scenes of Mission Control Having read Gene Kranz s biography and Andrew Chaikin s A Man on the Moon , it was nice to read about familiar and not so familiar names The beginning couple of chapters took a bit of work to get through and it improves a lot from there.

      Great book, these are the guys who really got us to the moon If life hadn t gotten so busy I easy could have devoured the book over a weekend, I also didn t want to fly through it since I wanted to let things sink in and really think about all the things these guys accomplished.

      Hidden GemsSurely the makings of a good many Boys Own style of stories Anyone interested in the American Space Program needs to understand the backup side of the story and this book tells it in spades Wonderful stuff

    7. Brian Page on said:

      GO FLIGHT THE UNSUNG HEROES OF MISSION CONTROL, 1965 1992, is a story that well deserves being told even if this account does not necessarily tell it well The writing is a bit awkward at times At one particularly abrupt page transition I even double checked the page numbers to see if a signature had escaped binding For much of the first portion the account nearly descends into being nothing than a litany of pissing contests between Mission Control and, well, every other organization If that s a [...]

    8. Tim on said:

      This is a really well done personal history of the group that established the traditions of flight control in Houston s Mission Control The book is compelling and crisply written and captures the culture and the feel of working and operating in Building 30 It s a well told story that deserves its place in the narrative of that amazing period Bravo

      Any time I read something about NASA, it makes me remember why it was my dream job to work there Someday

      A good review of the tough work done by the mission control team supporting the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions I have a much better feel for the organization and demands of the job.
