Wow, this is excellent! Compared to the lander manual, this is more focussed on systems and how things actually work. Perhaps that's because the rover was so much more mechanical than the lander? but it's fascinating how it mixes school level physics which the harsh limits the team faced, they ended up with some really cool integration and KISS style solutions, as well as the usual extra high tech stuff.

Starts with a nice history of lunar rover design previous to the apollo programme, which makes clear just how much work had already been done before the rover as we know it was created in a super short period of time.

Written in a clear style - even the technical parts are well written - along with some lovely photos and NASA handbook pages. This is an excellent book that in some ways is hidden by the Haynes branding (which has gotten a bit silly sometimes with subject matter). fab

This book has a place as a reference volume on any bookshelf. The detail will appeal to anyone of a scientific or engineering background or with an interest in the history of spaceflight.

It's like going to the Moon and back. Every page speaks of the incredible feat that 400,000 people at Nasa had to accomplish in order to send a man on the Moon. The Lunar Rover is a masterpiece in space engineering and simplicity. A good lesson in design, creativity and imagionation. A must have for the demanding space enthusiast.

If you, like me, are a fan of the Apollo program, this books is a nice piece of work. It complements the fantastic graphic work of Scott Sullivan in Virtual LM. I recommend it, no doubt. Interesting and well priced.

Tells the story of the development world's greatest super-buggy and how it was used on the moon by Apollo astronauts to enhance the research.

Compared to the authors previous Haynes title Apollo 11,this is a much more technical work,and there were times when i felt i needed a Electrical engineering degree! Having said that it definitely comes under the heading of everything you wanted to know about the lunar rover,but were afraid to ask.So if you've an intrest in Space exploration and especially the Apollo program,it deserves a place on your bookshelf
