Two Thumbs Up for Two Sides of the Moon!

by Sara S on Aug 18, 2011

I loved this book, one of the best books I have read recently on the Space Race. Scott and Leonov lived parallel careers in many ways, and the twin narratives show much of what was similar and what was different between the two space programs. The stories of the encounters between cosmonauts and astronauts are hilarious at times, and the stories of their missions (some really historic ones such as Voskhod-2, Gemini-4, Apollo-Soyuz, and Apollo-15) are riveting. I recommend this book highly to anyone interested in the American and Soviet space programs!
