click images for larger view Moon walker, Neil Armstrong, says of Sky Walking "it's a 'tell it like it is' flight crew report of living and working in space -- from the Space Shuttle to the International Space Station...An inside story--well told!"

The memoir is a summation of eleven years in the astronaut program, where this Distinguished Graduate of the United States Air Force and B-52 pilot spent 52 unforgettable days in earth orbit - including more than nineteen hours working outside the International Space Station during three extended periods of 'sky walking'.

Jones also delves into life working with the Russians and the tragic loss of Columbia. Critics say it's an 'unusually expressive contribution to the spaceflight genre' and that Jones will 'claim space buffs with his frankness and jargon-free fluency'. Tom Jones is the coauthor of two books on space and history for young people and co-wrote The Complete Idiot's Guide to NASA. Features Reviews:
