About This Item

New York: Simon & Schuster, October 2006. Trade Paperback. First Paperback Edition (stated) / full number line. As New. Pristine inside and out. Not from a library. No remainder mark. xiv+767 pages.

On July 20, 1969, the world stood still to watch thirty-eight-year-old American astronaut Neil A. Armstrong become the first person to step on the surface of another heavenly body. Perhaps no words in human history became better known than those few he uttered at that historic moment. In a penetrating exploration of American hero worship, Hansen addresses the complex legacy of the First Man, as an astronaut and an individual.
