Buzz Aldrin: The Pilot of the First Moon Landing
As an average student, it was Buzz Aldrin's competitive spirit and a dream to fly that took him all the way through West Point, flight school, a Ph.D. program at MIT, and--eventually--all the way to the Moon. Though full of triumphs, he also saw his share of challenges, including alcoholism and depression. Told in vivid detail and accompanied by stunning NASA photographs, this book shows Aldrin as a man who triumphed over adversity to achieve his dream.
