Collins can write... He is breezy, glib, collegiate, and frequently funny. There are marvelous things in Carrying the Fire that catch a reader unaware every few pages. The New York Times Strikingly authentic. Collins is an extremely good writer, and his lean, forceful prose makes this an unusually readable memoir... Written with vigor, humor, and unusual insight into men and machines, this is an outstanding book. Library JournalAbout the Author:
