Kurson's incredible book "Rocket Men" tells one of the greatest stories of adventure in the modern age, a story that captivated not just the nation, but the entire world.

It's the story of the race to the moon. If you loved The Right Stuff and Apollo 13, you'll love this book. After the Soviets launched Sputnik, the space race had begun and, although John Kennedy set getting to the moon within ten years as a goal, it almost didn't happen.

Growing up, we all knew the names of the three astronauts Kurson's incredible book "Rocket Men" tells one of the greatest stories of adventure in the modern age, a story that captivated not just the nation, but the entire world.

Growing up, we all knew the names of the three astronauts who actually landed on the moon, but the story of Apollo 8, the rocket that first made it to the moon is a far more incredible story, particularly given how quickly the launch came together without the usual testing.

Kurson takes on a journey with Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders, to the moon and back, step by breathtaking step. You can feel the world's emotions as the countdown commences, as each rocket stage breaks off, as the astronauts disappear in the dark side of the moon, and as they re-enter the earth's atmosphere and splash into the Pacific.

It's also set appropriately in historical perspective with the Cold War space race, the war in Vietnam, the riots in the cities, and in as Dr King and Robert Kennedy were brutally cut down, taking with them so much of the hopes and dreams of the nation.

It took a Christmas miracle in the form of Apollo 8 to give the country hope and optimism again. Kurson also gives us the background history of each of these astronauts, where they grew up, how they met their wives, how they dreamed of being test pilots and eventually chosen to be the second group of astronauts, following the Gemini program.

It's amazing that this journey to the moon could be done with the simple technology of the day and the computers they had then.

Yet, the scientist' calculations were spot on. This book is do well-written and do fascinating that it was a joy to read. Thank you to Random House for providing a copy for review.

What I don't remember is how the year ended with the first manned trip to the moon on Apollo 8, set to launch Christmas day. One man even told NASA they dare not launch on Christmas, because it was sure to fail, kill everyone, and ruin the holiday for the entire country from that day forward.

But the flight succeeded. Succeeded in ways one couldn't imagine at - A blast from the past. Succeeded in ways one couldn't imagine at the time, and for which credit is seldom given.

It gave the country a blast of just what it needed at that time -- Spirit? Unity, I think. Another thing I cannot remember are the names of which astronauts went with which Apollo mission.

I am horrible with names. And numbers. Apollo 11 and 13 stand out but only because they are in the news so often. A thankfully brief history was given, and then on to the exciting stuff, off to orbit the moon and witness the dark side.

Some male acquaintances will find the descriptions of getting sick in a spaceship --where vomit and diarrhea become floating projectiles -- quite amusing.

Well, so did I! And I enjoyed the suspense each time the spaceship came to a new phase in its journey, always with a question about whether it would function as designed, or fail.

And the human faces put on the three astronauts as they made mistakes and at times struggled with their choices that put family second to career.

Narrator Ray Porter has a very nice voice and was able to make his reading sound conversational and to keep me interested even in the science parts.

In the lighter moments, I could have sworn I was listening to a snarky Tom Hanks, which is the highest of compliments! This is an amazing book. I believe that the Apollo 11 story has really overshadowed this story.

The author does a wonderful job of introducing us to the men who oversaw and flew this mission. He also really put the mission into perspective for the country.

This is a great audiobook. Aug 20, Scott rated it it was amazing. Whether it was the surprise Tet Offensive, the capture of the USS Pueblo, the riots in the streets of Chicago during the DNC, or the double-tragedy of the Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy assassinations, many headline news stories were often casting a fairly bleak view for the country.

But in the final weeks there was a story that, if only for a few brief moments, raised the spirits for some of the nation during the holiday season.

The goal, as put forth by JFK in his brief presidency, was to land Americans on the moon before I think this was one of the better straightforward 20th century history books I've read in awhile.

Rocket Men is a fantastic recounting of this mission and the stories of the three astronauts that pulled it off: Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders.

Despite the fact that the Apollo 8 mission took place during late December and was soon overshadowed by Apollo 11s moon landing mission in Apollo 8 was the first time human beings traveled beyond Earth orbit and through deep space to another world - three astronauts traveled to the moon and made ten orbits before returning to the Earth.

And you will understand why when you read the book. The US was lagging behind the Russians in all aspects of the space race - the Russians had put the first human in space, performed the first spacewalk, and had their eyes firmly set on the moon.

Meanwhile, NASA was having issues with their massive and complicated space vehicle, the Saturn V, which was designed to carry the first astronauts to the moon.

With intelligence coming back of an impending Russian mission to send cosmonauts to a lunar orbit, NASA gambled and decided to push Apollo 8 forward, despite the fact that engines malfunctioned during the unmanned Apollo 6 test flight.

There was a lot of hand wringing at NASA as the apex of the Apollo 8 mission would take place over Christmas and if something went wrong at the moon or before and the astronauts did not return, many would look at the moon differently and would remember Christmas with a heavy heart from that year forward.

Rocket Men contains a lot of biographical information about the three astronauts before and after Apollo 8, not just what they went through during the mission.

The reader also gets to know their wives, which I though was pretty neat, because they went through so much while their husbands trained and flew their missions.

I remember watching as much as I could of the subsequent missions, though. The Saturn V is an amazing sight, and still the most powerful machine ever made.

I am nuts about all things space. But there is so much more to this book than just a space mission. Take time to read the Sources section at the end of the book.

He also spend days with then NASA Flight Director Chris Kraft, interviewed anyone connected with Apollo 8 still alive to get the full story, and pored over many once-secret declassified documents.

The detail in the book is a testament to the amount of research carried out. Apollo 8 is truly a great story of boldly venturing in to the unknown along the lines of other monumental quests like climbing Everest, sailing across the Atlantic for the first time, or traveling to the poles for the first time.

Kurson, like in his previous work, Shadow Divers, delves deeply into the context of a singular event, and makes the unique fit into the larger history.

While appropriate attention is devoted to their three families back in Houston, events in Rocket Men: The Daring Odyssey of Apollo 8 is a very compelling narrative history of the first and very risky journey of man leaving earth to orbit the moon.

While appropriate attention is devoted to their three families back in Houston, events in Mission Control and a couple chapters to set the historical scene of the tumultuous in the United States, most of the text of this book takes place within the 11 x 13 sq foot space of the Apollo 8 command module.

Even within that confined capsule, that traveled a quarter million miles, and with an outcome that is well known, the intensity of the flight, it's risky and aggressiveness and world historical importance are told with full impact.

The admiration the author has for the crew is clear. The respect he has for their families and ground control teams comes through well enough.

He does perhaps hit on a bit too often the risks involved with the engines, and the lunar orbit insertion and extraction burns. That said, the he has written in a way that the reader can be the fourth member of the crew, understanding why events and decisions happened the way they did.

Kurson draws on great secondary sources, but the strength of this book is his access and extensive interviews of the three crew members and their families.

Due to their age, this book may be the last time their full story can be told this way and so well.

Each of the three astronauts, who later achieved success in the corporate world, goes to great lengths to show the love and connection they had and still have with their families and especially their spouses.

As a the fifty year anniversary of this mission is approaching, reliving the important events of Apollo 8 for a new generation is very important.

As a narrative history, Rocket Men is quite enjoyable and a page turner. It is highly recommended. Feb 24, Christopher rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , space-apollo-program , space , own-yes , read-no , space-moon.

Short version: Wow, what a surprise. To space fans, Apollo 8 is probably the least celebrated of the great spaceflights of the cold war.

There wasn't a book devoted to covering the flight until Short version: Wow, what a surprise. There wasn't a book devoted to covering the flight until Zimmerman published his trailblazing book in , thirty years after the fact.

Amazingly, it was nearly another twenty years before Kluger's book arrived in Kluger is an outstanding writer, and I think his efforts on Lost Moon made it one of the best books about the Apollo program.

With Apollo 8 , it seemed to me that Kluger had written the definitive book about Apollo 8. Kluger wrote elegantly and authoritatively, and he tells the story almost through the eyes of the astronauts themselves.

What more needed to be said about this event? But as we sometimes learn, a new perspective can be refreshing, even when we think the last word may have been spoken about a particular subject.

In , a new book about Apollo 8 was unexpected, especially from a writer whose skills did not appear to be in aerospace. I found Rocket Men by a happy accident during a search on Amazon, and I automatically knew I needed to have it.

Robert Kurson was a bestselling author, but I didn't know anything about him or the book he wrote, Shadow Divers.

It was with that skepticism that began reading Rocket Men. It initially did nothing to allay my fears. First, I groused about the title, which I felt was too broad and undescriptive.

Rocket Men also happens to be the title of an earlier and lesser book about the Apollo program, so the chance of confusion was possible.

What author wants to title their book after an earlier, undistinguished book about the same subject? Kurson was losing me right from the gate.

What quiet engineer contemplates saving the world? This did not seem like the behavior of George Low, one of the architects of the Apollo program.

What a melodramatic way to begin a book, I kept thinking. As Kluger accurately described in his book, the crew that would eventually become Apollo 8—Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders—were originally slated for a high earth orbit mission on Apollo 9.

This is an important change, and all it needs is a short explanation of before and after. The reader might naturally believe it's a typo on page 9.

Elsewhere, there are a few minor errors of fact. In one instance, Kurson describes the launch of Sputnik 1 in as having taken place at the Baikonur Cosmodrome—although the launch complex was not known by that name until many years later.

In the s it was known merely as a missile test range near Tyuratam. And how about that those skillsets arguably vaulted the US space program ahead of the Soviets by that point?

To understand how Apollo came to be, I think it must be said why Gemini was important in laying the groundwork. And then came my outrage of the book.

Kraft is certainly referring to a specific point in the Apollo 8 planning, when a December mission date was contemplated but not yet committed.

By the time Kurson tells this story, Slayton had already swapped Apollo 8 and 9, and Apollo 8 was designated a lunar mission with a known December window.

So why would there be any question about lunar positions and trajectories? Because there wouldn't be. Rocketman stars Taron Egerton , Bryce Dallas Howard , and Richard Madden reveal the most surprising thing they discovered about Elton John while filming the musical biopic.

Watch now. A musical fantasy about the fantastical human story of Elton John 's breakthrough years. As far as films released in goes, 'Rocketman' is to me in the better half.

Even if accuracy and the chronology can be called into question, it still makes John and his personal life, detailing his childhood, early career and how it came to be and the troubled period of his career, quite fascinating.

As well as being worthy of a lot of admiration in its own right. Not everything works. For my liking, the last twenty minutes or so are executed too tidily.

While John and Bernie Taupin are well rounded and fully realised characters, the other characters, despite being well acted by particularly Bryce Dallas Howard, felt like underdeveloped caricatures i.

However, 'Rocketman' has so many things working in its favour and more so than the bad. First and foremost, Taron Egerton. A totally committed and quite brilliant performance full of confidence, swagger, flair, subtlety and nuance, not to mention a great singing voice, treating John with respect without impersonating him.

The scene where he opens up to his mother and his reaction to her cold response was heart-breaking in particular. Jamie Bell is the other performance worthy of note and the relationship between John and Taupin is handled beautifully, with the right amount of intensity but also taste.

One can tell how well they clicked and feel their mutual affection and it really drives the film and at times the heart of it. It looks great too, beautifully photographed and John's flamboyant costumes are a sight to behold, one of the bigger examples being that unlike-anything-you've-seen-before one in the therapy.

The songs are as magnificent as one expects and staged with a lot of brio and confidence without being overblown. The very moving "Your Song", performance and the understated staging, being a big standout in this regard, another powerful part being with what is done with the opening of "Yellow Brick Road", done so truthfully and mirroring what is going on at that present moment without spelling it out too much and showing how much Taupin cares for John.

Heck, the film even manages to make "Crocodile Rock" tolerable in one of the film's more exuberant moments. The script manages to be both entertaining and sincere, underneath all the flashiness there is depth too.

There may be conventional moments in the story a lot of biopics though are like that , but the scenes showing off John's unique showmanship are difficult to look away from and the story detailing John's troubled personal life at the time is powerful.

A great job is done showing who John is, what he is and how his mind worked when dealing with troubles and when he was writing and performing.

Dexter Fletcher's direction is adept. Summing up, a very, very good and often great film that just misses out on being brilliant. De manier waarop een samenwerking hoort te zijn.
