Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
This is not a story about an Astronaut,
this is a story about a Black Astronaut.
I was quite shocked how in this day and age somebody is still segmenting and differentiating themselves and their achievements based upon the colour of their skin.
Would you recommend Chasing Space to your friends? Why or why not?
This guy has led one of the most interesting and exciting lives,
but if you were to replace every occurrence of the word black, with the word green,
it would soon becoming an awkward read.
Leland’s story kept me wanting to hear more. I loved learning all about his NASA experiences and the technical side of everything. The most admirable qualities of Leland as evident in his writing is his passion for discovery, his authenticity, patience and sheer brilliance. Not only was his delivery easy to follow but I felt like I was getting to know Leland personally through his sharing. My favorite moments are when he speaks about his relationship with his parents and feathers in his faith; both he acknowledges have shaped him into the man he is today. I will recommend this book to many!!! Susan
I loved this book about his many acomplishments in his extremly acomplished life, just wonderful.
