JFK and the Moon Landing and Personal Stories of 9/11

I’ve listened to a few good and recently-released books on Audible over the last few weeks. Highly recommend both titles, and they’re particularly good listens in audio form.

Douglas Brinkley’s American Moonshot is a biographical portrait of Kennedy through the moon landing public debate, not an entire history of the program. Great insight into the triumph and tragedy of JFK and his true vision of the importance of the undertaking, when few others could understand.

Mitchell Zuckoff’s work Fall and Rise tells the events of the day of 9/11 through a multitude or personal stories and remembrances. A very tough read or listen, but tremendously powerful. It’s also worth pausing to think that we are getting to the point where 9/11 is becoming history, not just memory.
