Drive, determination, and desire are the enduring qualities that are reflected throughout this audiobook, narrated by its author, former astronaut Mike Massimino. As a child, he was bright and mathematically gifted but not terribly motivated--until he saw the movie THE RIGHT STUFF. From that point on, he knew he wanted to be an astronaut. His performance is filled with enthusiasm and passion for his chosen profession as he takes listeners through his first attempts to become enter the field. Even when he was ineligible because of his eyesight, he did exercises to change the shape of his eyes so that his vision could be corrected to 20/20. His joy is contagious, and his accomplishments are incredible. Everyone, not just science geeks, will enjoy this production. E.E.S.
