Currently reading this book and I am enjoying it very much! It is always interesting to read about our astronauts!! Now if we can just get Joe Engle to write about his X-15 and space careers.

A few days ago I was very pleasantly surprised to receive this video from Al Worden and Francis French. Thank you Al and Francis for bringing "Falling to Earth" to the collectSPACE community!
Though Al thanks me for the coverage of "Falling to Earth" on collectSPACE, I would extend that thanks to our members who have shared their thoughts on this thread and brought the book into their communities.

That is a cool thank you video. All things considered though, if the narrative wasn't good and the story wasn't exciting, no amount of helping to cover it would have done much. So it ultimately comes down to the words Al and Francis put on the page. Once the book is bought, it is just you (the reader) and them as they tell the story.
So thanks to both Al and Francis for inviting us all to come along for the ride.
