Read in August, 2004

I actually finished this about a week ago, but have been wanting to find the time to give it the glowing detailed review it deserves. Looks like that's not going to happen, so i better just get it out here and simply say: THIS IS GREAT.

It's what the HBO Series "From the Earth to the Moon" was based on. It's what the actors read when preparing for Apollo 13. It's simply a thorough, engagingly written overview of the whole Apollo program. as someone who missed the tv & film renditions of this information, i was coming from a position of interest but only vaguely informed. This left me as jazzed about space exploration, and science in general, as any museum, book or movie has ever done. you feel like you're getting inside the astronauts' heads. you're meeting the scientists & technicians they worked with. it's just great. read it now!
