Colin Burgess signed a good number of copies for Novaspace while at Spacefest in Tucson last week, and I see that they are now listed for sale online (thanks to Steve Hankow for the tip). Of course, being based in Australia, Colin-signed copies of this book are generally not so easy to get.

I just finished reading this book which I had borrowed from my local public library. Let me say honestly that when I first saw the book I assumed that it would just be another re-hashing of the Apollo program with very little new insight. I found however that assumption to be quite incorrect.

I consider myself quite an Apollo fanatic but I learned many things about both the astronauts and the missions that I did not know. A good example being the 'step zero' issue on Apollo 13. I don't recall reading about that in any of my Apollo 13 books which include the best ones out there: Lovell's Lost Moon, Liebergot's Apollo EECOM, and my oldie but goody Cooper's Thirteen: The Apollo Flight that Failed.

There were many other new bits of info and I found myself having a hard time putting the book down. The chapter of the personal account of the ASTP Saturn 1B launch was my favorite.

All in all a VERY well written book by a excellent team of writers. Kudos.

I have just been informed that "Footprints in the Dust" has now been released as an audiobook, and is available from Audible (Amazon).
