    Yes it's a good read, although if you are one of those "modern politically
    correct types" then the book might wind you up a bit.

    I think Sir Patrick was actually part of a "team" that assisted NASA in the
    moon project (the mapping issue) but he did have a significant involvment.
    Interesting that he actually got to interview Neil Armstrong on the Sky at
    Night after the first moon landing. Armstrong did not like publicity and
    has tended to shy away from interviews since the first moon landing. Also
    Buzz Aldrin presented Sir Patricks special TV award a couple of years back.

    I don't think Sir Patrick can be called a professional astronomer as he
    makes a living writing and presenting books/TV shows about astronomy.
    Murray Walker was not a professional F1 racing driver, although he make a
    living writing and commentating about it. To me a professional astronomer is
    someone who's main "professional" activity is undertaking tasks involving
    astronomy itself.

    > although if you are one of those "modern politically

    But if you are one of those "old fashioned intolerant bigot" types you will
    really enjoy it!

    will

    Note that Sir Patrick's causes are not all right-wing. He's against fox
    hunting.
