Good Stuff

This is not just the right stuff. It's Good Stuff! Tom Wolfe is a real master writer.

Although I had watched the movie adapted from the book, I regret that I did not read this book earlier. The book has much much more than the movie.

This book is good

Great book which tells the story of the first astronauts selected among test pilots.

Fantastic book about fighter jocks and the seven astronauts. As I recall, I was crying with emotion and simultaneously laughing at myself.

The book tells a more interesting story about the astronauts, while the movie is far better when it centers around test pilots - namely Yeager.
