I just received back in the mail today a copy of John Glenn's 1964 book. I am just trying to figure out what it's proper title is? Would it be, "P.S. I Listened To Your Hear Beat," or is it, "Letters To John Glenn?"

I had been thinking all along that it was "P.S....", but the title page where Senator Glenn signed says, "Letters To John Glenn."

For what its worth, Amazon.com lists it as: P.S. I Listened to Your Heartbeat: Letters to John Glenn

I guess it depends on which edition you are referring to. My copy dates back to 1964, published by World Book Encyclopedia Science Service Inc. and the title is Letters to John Glenn both on the dustjacket and on the book. I guess the P.S. is a sub-title.

Thanks guys. I guess both the title and the publishing company name are a bit wordy!

In any event I think it is an interesting book. I have personally referred to it as an anthropological (I hope that is a real word) core sample of society at the dawn of the space age. With all of the memoirs and books written about space flight from the participants and historians, this is a book of opinions and thoughts from the average Joe on the street.
