Nicely presented; great for the new enthusiast,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Destination Moon (Hardcover)
A nicely packaged 8-inch square hardback. Lots of photographs throughout, many full page and in colour. Starts with the Kennedy speech and the horror of Apollo 1. Missions 7, 8, 9 and 10 receive a few pages each but it is only with 11 onwards that the book brings in any detail.
From Apollo 11 on, there is a chapter per mission, combining more good photos and transcripts of the conversations recorded from space and Mission Control.
Finishes with two useful chapters: an interview with the eminently likeable Alan Bean, one-time Apollo 12 Lunar Module Pilot and now artist, plus a set of brief mission profiles of each of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo flights. Perhaps coverage of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project may have been a worthwhile addition?
Little new here for the Apollo anorak, but a very good and very visual summary for the new enthusiast.
