I recently purchased this book from Amazon for my grandson aged 11yrs, and he says "It is Cool" in his words. Delivery was very impressive and fast, as is always the case with your Company. He is very interested in this book. Many thanks.

One Giant Leap 13 Sep 2009
By D. Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was purchased in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the July 20, 1969 landing. It tells the story in detail with all of the original famous pictures, and even many color photos I had never seen before. It gives the history with wonderful large and full color photos of John Glenn's Mercury Atlas ship, Mission Control, etc. In addition, the book looks to the future with text and photo quality illustrations of Orion.

The only things I could not find were photos of Gemini and an index. However, this is more of a coffee table book so an index is not really necessary.

I greatly enjoyed this book and would recommend it without hesitation to the spaceflight enthusiast and/or the historian. THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS BOOK IS THE PICTURES.

I LOVE PICTURES AND THIS HAS A LOT OF THEM AND PHOTOS NEVER HAVE SEEN BEFORE! JUST LOOKING AT THE PICTURES TELLS THE WHOLE STORY AND THE CLARITY OF THE PHOTOS IS GREAT! READING IS ALSO VERY GOOD. THIS IS A GOOD PICTORIAL HISTORY OF APOLLO 11 MISSION! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ONE ALSO!

An average book 19 Jun 2010
By Delta Sigma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I worked on Gemini and Apollo at Kennedy, and I try to read every space history book I can get my hands on. From the title, I expected this book to be exclusively about the Apollo 11 mission. However, there is a lot of material included that, while still of interest, has nothing to do with Apollo 11. The photos are good, altho some of the captions are a little misleading. There are several technical and factual errors, including the strange one making the rounds lately about Apollo 6 heading toward earth before recovering and limping into orbit.

One Giant Leap:Apollo 11 Remembered 24 Aug 2010
By Sara Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well, Well This book has great pictures. I enjoyed it. I know about Apollo 11. I was working on Apollo, too. I know many folks who knew Neil, Buzz and Michael. It is a shame that some of the reviewers think that they are the gift from the the universe. These people not only give horrible reviews, they think that they are experts on the entire world and especially Apollo.
I got news for you, you are are nothing. One person NEVER gives a decent review, he is an offensive jerk.
He has to be THE expert on everything.

Anything that celebrates Apollo 11 is a good book. The pictures are lovely. The story is true to the actual mission.
The rest of your complaints ought to be forgotten.
