[i]Fifty years after the space race, these perfect painted women couldn't seem less relevant. Koppel...does not explain her interest in the women or give any reason why she decided to write the book. She doesn't say much about her sources and there is no indication which are new quotes and which, if any, are taken from old "Life" articles. There is a feeling that most of the material from the Moon landings themselves is lifted from the famous and furiously bored description written for "Life" by Norman Mailer. This gives the book a sheeny, fictional feel that is as Valiumed and twee as the endless cast of coiffed Betty Drapers.[/i]
[i]...Otherwise this is a fun, unusual read - but if feels more like a tie-in with Mad Men than actual history.[/i]
