Product description

Review

'[T]he book is at its most successful when Whitehouse gets out of the way of its protagonists, letting the astronauts and cosmonauts offer their own verbatim accounts of their often perilous - and occasionally fatal - missions. The real strength of this book is its tribute to the human qualities of these men -and they are all men, with the exception of the brief but gripping story of one female cosmonaut - who were willing to sacrifice so much.'--The Irish News

'David Whitehouse's masterly narration of what he calls 'the inside story' is profoundly gratifying.'--The Spectator

'Fascinating.'--The Observer

'Fast-paced and tremendously readable ... What makes this book really stand out from other Apollo based books is the inclusion of long quotes from interviews with astronauts such as John Glenn (the first American to orbit Earth), Eugene Cernan (the last man to walk on the Moon) and, of course, Neil Armstrong himself.' ***** Book of the Month--BBC Sky at Night magazine

'In the most authoritative book ever written about Apollo, David Whitehouse reveals the true drama behind the mission, telling the story in the words of those who took part based around exclusive interviews with the key players ... [An] enthralling book.'--All About Space

'One of the best books ever written about the lunar landing ... absolutely brilliant.'--Engineering and Technology Magazine

'Terrific and enthralling.'--New Scientist

'Whitehouse has a reporter's gift for uncomplicated storytelling.'--Financial Times

"Written by a career astronomer and science correspondent who covered the people involved in all aspects of the first moon landing, this title's narrative relies on the author's old notes and tapes, press kits he stashed away in his archive, and his own perspective, honed over the course of his 40-year career, on what the journey meant to the astronauts themselves."--Publishers Weekly
