Presented is the first edition printing of No Dream Is Too High: Life Lessons From a Man Who Walked on the Moon, written by astronaut Buzz Aldrin with Keith Abraham. Buzz Aldrin signed the full title page, in blue ink. Published by National Geographic in 2016, this first edition is presented in the original publisher’s black spine over gray boards and original pictorial dust jacket. The book is illustrated throughout with black and white and color photographs.
The book is part memoir and part inspirational self-help book, using Aldrin’s stories as a backdrop for broad life lessons. Aldrin reflects and shares what he has learned about life from the vantage point of both outer space and time. Consisting of nine principles to live by, each accompanied by fascinating anecdotes and memories, this thought-provoking book is a beautiful memento of a life well lived. Moreover, Aldrin is “just as candid about his disappointments, struggles and failures as he is about his extraordinary achievements, and this is what makes his story so appealing" (The Washington Post).
