Magnificent Desolation Zusammenfassung

Magnificent Desolation: The Long Journey Home from the Moon Buzz Aldrin

Buzz Aldrin, one of the three men who took part in the first moon landing in 1969, is a true American hero. "Magnificent Desolation" begins with the story of his voyage into space, which came within seconds of failure, and reveals a fascinating insider's view of the American space programme. But that thrilling adventure was only the beginning, as Aldrin battled with his own desolation in the form of depression and alcoholism. This epic journey encompasses the brutally honest tale of Aldrin's self-destruction, and the redemption that came through finding love when hope seemed lost.

'Exciting and moving' DAILY EXPRESS 'Thrilling. Forty years on, the raw facts of the adventure remain beguiling and the bravery of the astronauts compelling' SUNDAY TIMES 'Buzz Aldrin might not have been the first man to walk on the Moon, but of all the astronauts to have been there, none of them has articulated their predicament with quite such wisdom and sensitivity' MAIL ON SUNDAY
