About the Author:
Laurence Bergreen is the author of several award-winning biographies, including those of Louis Armstrong, Al Capone, Irving Berlin, and James Agee. He has written for many national publications including Esquire and Newsweek, taught at the New School for Social Research, and served as Assistant to the President of the Museum of Television and Radio in New York. Bergreen has also served as a nonfiction judge for the National Book Awards and as a judge for the PEN/Albrand Nonfiction Award. Voyage to Mars is soon to be an NBC-TV television movie that will premier in spring 2002, and a weekly series that will debut in fall 2002. Bergreen lives in New York City.
From AudioFile:
George Guidall gives an intelligent, precise, and animated rendering of the Mars-enthralled culture of NASA. It is hard to imagine the book being better performed. Author Bergreen describes how the Red Planet captures the human imagination and inspires NASA's scientists and engineers to dream of sending men and women to it. Overall, however, the book, while rich in NASA lore and entertainingly read, is a bit rambling and unfocused. K.C. AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
