The Right Stuff - Tom Wolfe

There are not too many historical novels, or perhaps non-fiction novels about astronauts, and this is one. Done in a sort of epic, Micheneresque style, with a more focused scope, this looks at the crazy and crazy brave pilots, who become important parts of the American space program.

A fairly straightforward message is contained in this book 'these guys are American heroes'.

3.5 out of 5
