NO DREAM IS TOO HIGH: Life Lessons from a Man Who Walked on the Moon

A book written by the second man on the moon would be expected to encapsulate that incredible experience and give detail as to the space mission itself. Buzz Aldrin though, a man described as quirky, hilarious, and very witty, decided instead to incorporate that story into a large memoir and life guide for readers. Filled with life lessons on how to be happy, pursue the biggest dreams, and enjoy every moment of life, No Dream Is Too High brings the thrill of Apollo to the newest generation.
