New York: Simon and Schuster, 1962. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. 352 pages. Illustrated endpapers. Illustrations (some in color). Index. Cover has wear, chips, tears and soiling. Derived from a Kirkus review: The Astronauts are our new heroes, "part pilot, part engineer, part explorer, part scientist, " They're also, organization men supreme, sounding remarkably alike. The book presents the seven essaying why they joined Project Mercury (the reasons embrace pride in country and in self), the meaning of teamwork and training, the physical and psychological exams (almost all make sub rosa cracks re headshrinkers), and, most important, a full-scale record of the preparations for and enactment of the first sub-orbital and orbital take-offs by participants Shepard and Grissom, Glenn and Carpenter. It's the latters' accounts which prove the most exciting and exemplary, especially the Friendship 7 flight. So for all the Redstone, Atlas, Canaveral, NASA details and all the challenges and courageous responses shown. The book is a rewarding revelation.
