This is a very well written book that covers a truly amazing set of missions through space, told from the perspective of someone who lived through the prime moments of those missions. The fact that the author narrates the book himself is very satisfying. The intended inflections of the voice and mentions from the first person perspective feel so much more genuine when read by the author. I hope Jim wrote more books about space related topics, I'd be happy to listen to more of his work!
Exciting, Inspiring, and interesting! I've read SF for years... It was a lot of fun to listen to real science being done by real people, and see how SF writers could be inspired by it. I was born in 84, so most of what the Voyager missions accomplished were before my time, but the fact that we're still learning from them even today made me feel a part of the excitement and awe. Jim Bell's passion is obvious in this narrative, and him reading made it that much better. I'll be re-listening soon.

Any additional comments?
The author does a great job of explaining the subject in detail without turning the text into a rocket science technical manual. There are pieces of the personal stories which were very interesting that I wish had been expanded more but it was overall still very good. Highly recommend for anyone even remotely interested in the subject of space exploration with a personal touch.
