Come Up and Get Me: An Autobiography of Colonel Joseph Kittinger

Come Up And Get Me: An Autobiography Of Colonel Joseph Kittinger - Joe W. Kittinger, Craig Ryan I really liked this book, from the personality of the man, through the early history of space adventure and his experience in Vietnam, to his years as a barnstormer and balloon racer.

The history was concise and clear, the personal recollections interesting, and the pictures added just enough to have me digging for more. Colonel Kittinger has three life stories in here at least, all of them interesting, and he's not done yet. Well done!
