I wasn't sure I was going to like this book but today's read did it for me.
It is easy to forget what his time was like and how rocket science started.
Am going to enjoy reading the rest of this book

I found this read to be quite interesting, being that I work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and live in Pasadena, Calif. He appears to be a very complex person. I am enjoying reading about him and Pasadena back in the 1930's. I have purchased the book.
