A book about the Apollo missions from the point of view of the Astronauts and the photos they took themselves.
Each chapter represents a different Apollo mission and has a brief introduction/history of the mission together with some general and a few training photos. This is then followed by the Astronaut's own favourite photos and thoughts on what they experienced at the time, or later upon reflection.
Although interesting, I was slightly disappointed by the quality of book's binding and the dust jacket seemed a bit scruffy; but on the whole the photographs are good quality in both colour & black and white.
I would have liked a longer book & with more detail, as it's only 130 pages or so long and so there isn't that much to read...
A child of the apollo era, the moon landings have fascinated me. This book uses each Apollo mission as a chapter with several photos which collectively through the book provide a complete journey from earth to the moon and back; the Apollo 11 capsule collected by the US Navy shows burns as if it was an over-boiled kettle. A great value book if a little short. For great photos of the moon missions look no further than Full Moon.
