Read Time:47 Second
I read a paperback of this years ago – it's the book on which From the Earth to the Moon is based – then picked up a nice hardcover, and then saw this gorgeous three volume illustrated box set and had to have it. And of course I reread it.
The book wasn't as good as I remembered. It's still good, but the story is a smaller one about the astronauts of Apollo, and not about the entire program, as I recalled. So I've been reading other books about the program, some of which I'll post on soon. Don't get me wrong – this is still the kingfish of books on Apollo, and in this illustrated format it's the one you have to have if you're as obsessed as I am, but it's not the whole story.
