Though Aldrin's picture book autobiography follows the predictable trajectory of early and lifelong interest, pioneering attitude, and success through team and individual effort, its careful use of detail adds compelling immediacy to his moon landing story. Vivid illustrations use varying points of view effectively as Aldrin moves from military pilot to a team that "came in peace for all mankind." Chronology.
