“Usually relegated to brief mentions in histories of the space race, the NASA program’s chimps take center stage here as Cusick draws on a mix of interviews and archival sources to present a vividly portrayed, meticulously researched picture of their strenuous training and experiences... All hail these pioneering primates!” — Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

"The Astrochimps is an exciting, specialized history of the Space Race" — Foreword Reviews

“By touching on subjects of animal rights and experimentation, as well as gender equity within Homo sapiens society, Cusick breathes life into a seldom heard story and reminds readers that while ’we cannot undo the past... we can create a new future.’” — Publishers Weekly
