by Tom Wolfe
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY US ASTRONAUT SCOTT KELLY `Tom Wolfe at his very best... Learned, cheeky, risky, touching, tough, compassionate, nostalgic, worshipful, jingoistic - The Right Stuff is superb' New York Times Book Review 'What is it' asks Wolfe, 'that makes a man willing to sit on top of an enormous Roman Candle...and wait for someone to light the fuse?' Arrogance? Stupidity? Bravery? Courage? Or, simply, that quality we call 'the right stuff'? A monument to the men who battled to beat the Russians into space, The Right Stuff is a voyage into the mythology of American heroics, and a dizzying dive into the sweat, fear, beauty and danger of being on the white-hot edge of history in the making.
