First Man: The Life of Neil Armstrong by James R. Hansen

First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. HansenI really enjoyed the history behind the moon landing and Neil Armstrong.  I remember the moon landing, but never knew the man.  All the details were fascinating, and made for a good flow through his life, but also seemed tedius at times.  At the same time, I’d like to know a little more of his life outside of his career and how that influenced him.
Some of the narration seemed weak.  James Hansen obviously tried to bring the story full circle at the end, but the feeling was almost contrived (I won’t spoil it…).
