Leaving Earth – Autographed Copy
From Joseph Henry Press, September, 2003.
Winner of the 2003 Eugene M. Emme Award of the American Astronautical Society.
"This is a scientifically vivid and intensely personal book that explores the people and their relationships as much as the technology. . . . It's a grand chronicle of an overlooked human adventure, and also asks some difficult questions about the direction of the current space program. Recommended for all space fans, and for historians too." -- Focus, December 2003
