Good reference book but lacking in many details
on 29 May 2016
This is more like a reference book for quick facts on the moon than anything else. Sadly, much of what is included is deficient and much of what should have been included is missing. For instance, citations and/or sources to back up the author's alleged statements of fact are missing, so they appear to be nothing more than undocumented assumptions. His statement that the moon "will start to move back to the earth in 50 billion years" unaccountably overlooks the scientifically-documented fact that our solar system will die in just another 5 billion years. Finally, in his references to books about the moon and astronauts, the author inexplicably omits the definitive book about Apollo 13, "Lost Moon" by Jim Lovell and Jeffery Kluger. A great effort, but references are needed to enhance the book's credibility.
