Two Sides of the Moon
by David Scott & Alexei Leonov
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin; Reprint edition (21 Feb 2006)

With a foreword by Neil Armstrong, an introduction by Tom ("Apollo 13") Hanks, and a cover blurb by Norman Cousins, you know it's a heart-warmer. Cold War competitors Leonov—the first man to walk in space—and Scott—the seventh man to walk on the moon—join forces to reveal the inside story of the US-Soviet space race in a nostalgic dual autobiography. They cover the lead-up to the historic 1975 Apollo-Soyuz Test Project and also bring their stories up to date, providing their outlooks on current topics including the Challenger disaster, the prospect of manned flights to Mars, and the future of millionaire space tourists. Two sets of b&w photos separate the cosmonauts from the astronauts.

A Guerra Fria no espaço, uma vertente nunca abordada na literatura portuguesa... vou deliciar-me! :)
