Fascinating read about what Apollo astronauts did once they made it to the moon. Their geology was systematic and intentional. A bit technical, so if you are off put by that, then this will not be an enjoyable read.

I loved reading this book because it is exactly what it says, various accounts of events during the Apollo missions. My favourites​ chapters
