Most autobiographies are written to make the writer seem more or better than he is. Rough edges are smoothed, frailties glossed over, sins forgotten. Rare is the man who dares write his life for what it was. Rare is the man who dares write as he speaks, without pretension. Rare is the simple story, plainly told, and rarer still is a true story told honestly. Harold's story is both.

Jack Vance once was kind enough to offer me some good advice: "Let the reader get to know your characters before you get into the action." That advice is ignored here to the stories' detriment.
A second weakness of the writing is the author's tendency to tell rather than show what happens. There is a lot of 'splainin' going on in the first few pages. We learn all about nukes and asteroids and stuff, but what we don't do is see the characters being themselves.
But if this appeals to you, then, enjoy.
