I just loved the book and was also sad to reach the end.

Nice that they're using the shot of him in front of the X-15, as he liked talking for hours on end about the engineering aspects of the program.

Just a heads-up for those of you with Kindles, Amazon is currently offering "First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong" for $1.99. Not sure how long this will last...

I wonder if Neil Armstrong signed any copies of the book, perhaps just for James R. Hansen at least?

According to Hansen, Armstrong did not sign a copy for him or, to his knowledge, anyone else.

Auburn University release
Hansen achieves New York Times bestseller status a second time

College of Liberal Arts history professor James Hansen's book, "First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong," is now a two-time New York Times bestselling book.

Hansen's biography of the first man on the moon was a New York Times bestseller when it was first released by Simon and Schuster in 2005. Now, the updated edition from 2012, subtitled "The Essential Biography," has made the Times' list again in connection with the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission for which Armstrong served as commander.

Can't tell from reading the Amazon reviews, but is there actual updated content to the 2012 version, or is it the exact same as the hardcover edition released in 2005?
