KIRKUS REVIEW

From the extensive interviewing, in Russia, by British journalists, of Cosmonaut Major Titov and many others, Caidin has reworked the material into the story of the Russian who made the ""first journey of the Age of Space"". Here is Titov's childhood and personality, his conditioning and training culminating finally in the 17 circuit voyage in Vostok II. His record of his 25 hour experience is impressive to read and in some contrast to Glenn accounts to date. This material on the Russian road to space, the training course, the portrait of the Chief Constructor and of the Vostoks should be of immediate interest to the space-minded because of our recent achievements.
