FIRST MAN The Life of Neil A. Armstrong

by | Read by Boyd Gaines

Biography & Memoir • 10 hrs. • Abridged • © 2005

Neil Armstrong will always be remembered for being the first man to step on the moon, a milestone that played a role in everything he did afterward. Through most of this biography, which follows Armstrong from his youth to that historic lunar landing, Boyd Gaines reads with detachment, letting the facts of Armstrong's life speak for themselves--and those facts speak beautifully. When Gaines reaches the point when Armstrong takes those first steps, his voice fills with an awe and emotion that seems to flow naturally. The actual voices of astronauts from historic speeches and messages are used here to enhance the drama. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
