Image result for staff pickWhat a fantastic read!  We do have a special affinity for Mr. Kurson's books because, after all, he lives in Northbrook, our hometown. The success of his book Shadow Drivers spurred a television program on the History Channel;Crashing Through, his biography of Mike May was a store favorite. Now with Rocket Men available in a few short days, he delves into the NASA Apollo 8 mission in a feat of narrative nonfiction. Even reluctant readers of the genre will be swept up into the true tales of the courage, heroism, and incredible knowledge and brilliance it took to take three men to the moon in a pivotal time in our country's history.
