Book Review: Rocket Men

Fantastic book. Most know the story of the Apollo 11 mission to moon, at least in short form. In Rocket Men however, it's covered in a great level of detail, with interviews from crew members, ground crew, researchers, etc, and in doing so really carries across just how amazing a feat it was.

There's also a lot to learn about the way large organizations work. Examples of them both accomplishing amazing things and also being blindly bureaucratic.
