By: James Webb
272 pages, B/w photos
Neil Armstrong will forever be the first man on the Moon. But the person most responsible for putting him there is, incredibly, unknown. Drawing on original sources, this work tells the hidden story of the unconventional, charismatic man who made one giant leap for mankind.
'Bizony draws a fast-cutting portrait... bound to appeal to moon buffs of all ages.' Guardian 'Bizony tells Webb's remarkable story in a pacy way, revealing the highs and ultimately the lows of a flawed genius whose name has been forgotten by time' Good Book Guide 'Journalist Bizony's excellent corrective to NASA's mythologized history takes an unflinching look at how James Webb, a North Carolina farm boy turned Washington insider, ran his end of the space race as NASA's administrator under presidents Kennedy and Johnson. A firebrand of a book' Publisher's Weekly (US)
