[i]"Falling to Earth," Al Worden's incredibly unique and inspiring story written candidly with Francis French, is truly worth reading. Once I started Colonel Worden's compelling autobiography I could not put the book down.
I was particularly moved by his self-motivated character, forged in childhood, an appreciation of rising early to work all day on his family's farm, the strong but disappearing ethic that built our country and set Al on his unpredictable destiny into military training, flight school, NASA and flying to the moon in Apollo 15's historic exploratory mission for all humanity. His easy going personality filters through all his lifelong commitments and sacrifice, even through his unwarranted yet temporary change of fortune occurring a year after his highly celebrated trip to the moon.
What's more, I got the thrill to meet Colonel Worden personally, having portrayed him in the Emmy Award winning mini-series, "From the Earth to the Moon!" His only false words are his handwritten ones scribbled in my personal copy of "Falling to Earth" which say that "you play me better than me!" I doubt it.
Al Worden's incredible achievements and accomplishments which continue into present day are told in a highly relatable and humorous salt-of-the-earth manner. As expected, "Falling to Earth" is another job well done!![/i]
