godwin and apogee 16 Jun. 2006
By Lawrence Kuznetz - Published on
Format: Paperback
As someone who sat on a console during apollo 11-17, i've come to appreciate the exhaustively accurate and detailed work that Richard Godwin has done on this fine work. I might add that i've read most of the other Apogee offerings, from the X-15 history to the Mars Missions, and they all share these characteristics. Might i offer an opinion that they are also a fine read. Highly highly recommended.

Apogee Pocket Guides are Great Resource 9 Jun. 2006
By Michelle Evans - Published on
Format: Paperback
The Pocket Space Guide Series from Apogee is another great addition to their line of books. Robert has condensed things like the mission of Apollo 11 to a handy size that is perfect for those who want to get their feet wet and then to move on to their more detailed books on the subject such as the Mission Reports series. As always, their printing quality is superb and they have chosen excellent photographs, charts, diagrams, and artwork to make understanding the mission clear and easy. I highly recommend the Apollo 11 guide and all the rest in their series to educators and science centers. Giving these books to a group of kids who want to learn about space will really get their interest up.

Apollo 11: First Men on the Moon 12 Jun. 2006
By H. S. Markham - Published on
Format: Paperback
Along with the other books in this series I can thoroughly recommend this book to adults and school children alike. It puts the whole story of the first landing with all the relevant statistics in an easy to read format. Robert Godwin has taken a subject that could be boring - and made it fascinating. He obviously knows and loves his subject and this comes through in his writing. Enthralling AND informative! Great value too!

Good simple primer with good pictures 19 Aug. 2006
By John Vornle - Published on
Format: Paperback
Thirty quick read pages reflecting the historical roots and developments that lead to the first moon landing. It's a simple, good, "primer," accompanied by good pictures and straightforward factual details.

Apollo 11 Pocket Space Guide 21 Jun. 2006
By Joel W. Powell - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a consise guide to the Apollo 11 moon landing without the detail of a full-sized book, this is the product you are looking for. "Apollo 11: First Men On The Moon"

is filled with plenty of photos from the mission and technical

diagrams, combined with a brief but detailed description of the

entire flight. This booklet is perfect for young people who are

interested in the first moon landing (which occurred many years before they were born!) but haven't been satisfied with the

material they find on the internet, and don't want to dig into

as much detail as presented in the Apollo 11 volumes published by Apogee Books. It is also a great summary for those of us who

actually remember July 1969. Recommended.
