Gene Kranz’s original typed manuscript for his 2000 memoir Failure Is Not an Option, totaling approximately 550 pages, 8.5 x 11, consisting of the editor’s heavily annotated draft and Simon & Schuster cover letter returning the manuscript. Nearly every single sentence has been marked up and edited in some way. In very good to fine condition.

Accompanied by a signed letter of authenticity from Kranz, in part: “The original annotated proof of my book, ‘Failure Is Not an Option,’ that accompanies this letter is from my personal space archives. From the time it was published in 2000 by Simon & Schuster these pages have remained continuously in my possession...I hope that you will enjoy this story of my life and times in Mission Control as much as I did living in it and use it to keep the dream alive for many years to come.” Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
