Scott Carpenter's book For Spacious Skies is a decent read. My only negative on the book is that it spends alot of time on his childhood but if you stick with it, you'll soon find out why. The man is a perfect example of what someone can accomplish regardless of where they come from and what odds might be against them. There are some pretty decent foot notes that by themsleves, make for some great reading. Even old Mr. Kraft pops up in the book believe it or not.
Although not my favorite, I'm giving a 4 out of 5.
