Format: Paperback
Fantastic book exploring the race to the Moon and the lives of two of the astronauts , Deke Slayton and Alan Shepherd ( both unfortunately dead now.)
The book not only tells the story of how man got to the Moon, and of the various missions before Apollo ( Mercury and Gemini) but tells the incredible story of these two astronauts and their personal trials and tribulations ( both were grounded as astronauts for many years by NASA due to health problems.)
Alan Shepherd ( 1st American into space ) tells in graphic detail, his thoughts and feelings when he walked on the Moon on Apollo 14 and describes the harrowing and unbelievable story of how their mission almost ended in tragedy and failure, following on from the disaster of apollo 13, and which if had been unsuccessful would have meant the end of the Apollo missions ( infact the mission was so successful that a further three Apollo missions and landings took place after this.)
Anyone that enjoys an exciting adventure story must read this book. A spell-binding book that chronicles one of the most incredible adventures man has ever undergone.

By Mr Gordon Davidson on 27 Feb. 2015
Format: Paperback
An excellent overview of the Apollo programme which put men on the moon. It reads a little bit like a NASA manifesto but I'm willing to forgive that simply because it is such an awesome story.

The book focuses on the astronauts who flew the various missions and not so much on the technology, the technicians or the politics lurking behind everything.

Highly recommended.

By John Hopper TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 31 Aug. 2012
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this. Although it isn't actually written by Shepard and Slayton themselves, they were clearly the main focuses of the journalist author's writing. The quality of the writing was I thought very evocative and moving and really brought home the majesty and significance of the Apollo missions. Marvellous, stirring stuff. 5/5
