What a beautiful book. I found it ever so interesting to see which photos the different astronauts chose, and their comments about why. While some of the pictures selected for the book are iconic, many were unfamiliar to me. Well worth the trip to the library.
This is an awesome book that is full of brief descriptions of the various Apollo missions and full page spreads of Space photos that were taken by Astronauts. The real gem to this book would be the quotes from each Astronaut. They are beautiful, funny, stoic and help to convey what it would be like to have such a great experience. It is a quick and delightful read. But far less quick if you properly pay each photo the respect it deserves.
