This was a really good book - much more than I thought it might be. I thought it was well researched and really had some insight into why this happened. I was amazed it didn't happen sooner. I would recommend this book -
WAY too much description of the NASA space program! Seems like 3/4 of the book involved the program, the detail of the duties, etc. Very little insight into the parties involved and what caused them to go down this path; not only that of Lisa Nowak, but also her lover and husband...especially the husband. The book makes no mention of the dynamics within the marriage, and I was left still wondering what drove her to do what she did; it seems to easy to blame it on the "stress" of her job and losing friends in the Challenger disaster.
I would not recommend this book, and would still like to read an in-depth study of what lead to Lisa Nowak's behavior, becase I didn't read one with this book. I got a very good education on the NASA space program, but sadly that was not what I was looking for.
