George Guidall gives an intelligent, precise, and animated rendering of the Mars-enthralled culture of NASA. It is hard to imagine the book being better performed. Author Bergreen describes how the Red Planet captures the human imagination and inspires NASA's scientists and engineers to dream of sending men and women to it. Overall, however, the book, while rich in NASA lore and entertainingly read, is a bit rambling and unfocused. K.C. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
