There's an excellent new book on the shuttle Columbia - "Columbia -
Final Voyage".

What's unique is it's primarily about the crew and the mission, not
about the accident. During the flight there were only a handful of
reporters who actually followed the mission and filed regular stories.
Amazingly author Philip Chien also had behind-the-scenes access to the
scientists during the mission and also the crew before the flight
during their training.

Here's his website -

I have no connection to him, I'm just somebody who got a galley copy
for reivew and was very impressed with the amount of detail and how
readable it is to the layman while not dumbing it down.

Do you mean a copy to review for errors or a copy to write a book
review from. Would you be interested in writing a review for our book
website, ?
