Review: The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe

68 years since Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1.

If you’re looking for a book recommendation right now, then why not go for Tom Wolfe’s the Right Stuff, which tells the story of those experimental test pilots (before going on to look at John Glenn and the other Mercury Astronauts)?

A brilliant book that you’ll fly through.

If nothing else you’ll find out that Astronaut Pete Conrad once tied a poo in a little ribbon and bow for a medical test.
