Moon Landing - 40th Anniversary selection

Welcome to my blog!

This week's recommended Moon Landing 40th Anniversary selection is Andrew Chaiken's A Man on the Moon. This 720 page paperback book covers the Apollo Moon missions and was the basis for last week's recommended selection HBO's From the Earth to the Moon miniseries. Chaiken spent a decade writing this book, interviewing all 24 moonwalkers plus numerous others involved in getting man to the moon. The book is nicely illustrated with many black & white and color photos from the era.

There was an earlier release of this book - a beautiful 3 volume hardcover in a slipcase. Sadly, that version is no longer available (though you can check used book sources).
