One of the most compelling (and paradoxical!) aspects of this particular American icon is his down-to-earth personality. His earnestness and vitality come across clearly in this audio memoir. Not many of us realize just how significant John Glenn was as a national contributor. A sense of patriotism deeply instilled during his childhood in Ohio led to his serving as a fighter pilot in both WWII and Korea, then to his best-known achievements with NASA and beyond. Through all this, John Glenn takes listeners on his journey with an unmistakable reverence and love for the life work he's done. His performance is both inspirational and accessible as his "everyman" voice proves that anyone can live his dreams. R.A.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
