Too far from home : a story of life and death in space by Chris Jones( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every time an astronaut makes the trip into space, he faces the risk of death from the slightest mechanical error or instance of bad luck. In February 2003, American astronauts Donald Pettit and Kenneth Bowersox and Russian flight engineer Nikolai Budarin were on what was to be a routine fourteen-week mission maintaining the International Space Station. But then the shuttle Columbia exploded beneath them. With the launch program suspended indefinitely, these astronauts had suddenly lost their ride back to earth. This book offers a detailed portrait of the odd life of the people who live in zero gravity, as it chronicles the efforts of the beleaguered mission controls in Houston and Moscow working frantically to bring their men home--ultimately settling on a plan that felt, at best, like a long shot.--Résumé de l'éditeur

Falling hard : a rookie's year in boxing by Chris Jones( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rookie reporter Chris Jones had no idea what he was getting himself into when he took on the boxing beat. He was just looking for a sport to call his own, and boxing "was the unloved and unclaimed, the abandoned child on the department's stoop." But like so many others who are drawn toward boxing's dark lights, what began as a simple curiosity soon escalated to an unhealthy obsession." "In Falling Hard, Jones documents the year that followed, as the mysterious trade crept deep inside him, set his heart pumping one minute and broke it the next. It forced him to stare at violence - in others and in himself - and dared him not to flinch. He brings the reader with him, right down to ringside, where we can feel the blood and sweat of today's greatest boxers: Otis Grant, Roy Jones, Francois Botha, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield, and Cesar Soto, among others."--Jacket
