    I received an arc of this book on netgalley in exchange for a honest review Cool I really like seeing books about Michael Collins, because so often the spotlight is on his famous peers, like Neil Armstrong This book is a little long but for people interested in the space mission and how those people got to that point this is well worth reading.
