Kranz, a former Air Force fighter pilot, was NASA’s flight director from the start of the Mercury program. He worked on each of the Apollo missions, including the fatal Apollo 11 launch; the 1995 film portrayed how Kranz led the rescue efforts of that crew. This trade paper reprint of Kranz’s best-selling memoir comprises his own telling of the Apollo 13 story and much more from the space program’s earliest years. - booknews.com
