This biography of the first man to set foot on the moon is detailed, massive, and thorough. It's also full of vignettes and significant details about the people around him. It gives the listener great insight into Armstrong's intelligent, reserved character and how it came to be. Henry Strozier holds the listener's attention, in part, because he sounds much like Walter Cronkite-friendly, warm, direct, unhurried. His grandfatherly cadence is soothing, even when he's reading about the launch pad fire and plane crashes that killed some of Armstrong's closest colleagues. Armstrong may well be the most famous man in the universe. D.A.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
