About the Author

Michael Collins, a NASA astronaut, was the third American to walk in space (Gemini 10) and the pilot of the command module during Apollo 11's mission to the moon in July, 1969. Following his career as an astronaut, he served as the director of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. He has since retired and lives in Marco Island, Florida.

Reviews

Collins can write.... He is breezy, glib, collegiate, and frequently funny. There are marvelous things in Carrying the Fire that catch a reader unaware every few pages. * The New York Times *
Strikingly authentic. Collins is an extremely good writer, and his lean, forceful prose makes this an unusually readable memoir.... Written with vigor, humor, and unusual insight into men and machines, this is an outstanding book. * Library Journal *
