Customer Review

on 13 April 2006
Having a long-standing interest in this subject provided me with an ideal excuse to read this book. I did not know what to expect, but I was intrigued with the prospect of playing 'catch-up' with the moon-walkers - what happended to them after they returned to Earth? This book is a great starting point for those new to the Apollo missions, and those, like myself, who look for more insights into the experiences of the astronauts. The author deftly ponders the advantages of going to the moon - was it to advance the age-old wish for exploration? Was it to advance our earth-bound technology? Andrew Smith offers the answer that I like best - perhaps we needed to go so far to see exactly how fragile this planet of ours really is.
