I simply loved this book. Not having lived at the time when Apollo missions were actually happening, this book made me feel as if it all were happening now. It’s wonderfully detailed and interesting – you see the Moon through the eyes of the astronauts who went there and also see what the general public thought of man’s greatest adventure.

It was fascinating even though I’ve been reading quite a lot about Apollo missions, but this book was excellent – it’s not at all technical, it’s more reminiscent of travel journals.

You get an idea about the people and find out more about the Moon. It is sad though if you think of it all and realize no-one else has even sent a manned mission to orbit the Moon.
