First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong is the official biography of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. It was written by James R. Hansen and published in 2005 by Simon & Schuster.


James Hansen is a professor of history at Auburn University in Alabama. Auburn University. 2008-11-11. The writing process began in October 1999 when Hansen had first written to Armstrong asking if he could write the book. At first Armstrong told him that he was too busy and had already turned down several previous offers from authors such as Stephen Ambrose and James A. Michener. Hansen persisted, sending what he described as a "goody box" of his books, including a biography called From the Ground Up about aircraft designer Fred Weick.

Two months later, Armstrong signed a letter for Hansen that said Hansen had his full support and encouraged others to provide what he needed to write a book.
