Note: 
After a few chapters that introduce the reader to Ilan Ramon's boyhood and his service in the Israeli Air Force, the rest of this biography concentrates on his career as an astronaut. The author skillfully balances personal details, such as how the crew of the Columbia space shuttle bonded and became "like family," with technical information about training, how a space shuttle works, preparations for living in space, and life in orbit. The writing is cogent and lively but the format is rather drab. Appended material includes a glossary and an index.
