Publishers Description: Forty years ago, Buzz Aldrin became the second human being to set foot on the moon. The event remains one of mankinds greatest achievements and was witnessed by the largest worldwide television audience in history. In Magnificent Desolation, Aldrin not only gives us a harrowing first-person account of the lunar landing that came within seconds of failure, he also opens up with remarkable candor about his more personal trials. From the glory of being part of the moon mission, Aldrin returned home to an Air Force career stripped of purpose or direction. The twin demons of depression and alcoholism emerged - the first of which Aldrin confronted early and publicly and the second of which he met with denial until it nearly killed him.
