I have read and enjoyed several of the Springer Praxis Space Exploration series of boks and this one was no execption. It's not really a book for the casual reader, but for those of you with a keen interest in the Apollo Project, this book provides all the facts and figures you could want in one place. The authors have gone back to the original documents to ensure that the information presented is accurate. The book starts with a look at the deveolpment and testing of the various parts of the space craft, including the Saturn 1, 1b and V before going on to detail each mission. With over 600 pages, each flight is fully covered and has a set of tables that really do include just about everything you could possibly want to know about that mission from pre-launch through to recovery. So, if you are interested in the details that go beyond the scope of many books about the Moon landings, this is the volume for you.
