9780140272017: A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts

From flamboyant prankster Pete Conrad to scientist Jack Schmitt, who had to prove he was made of the "right stuff" to go to the moon, memorable characters abound in this brilliant chronicle of the Apollo missions. Chaikin makes technological details accessible to the lay person and gives each aspect of a moon voyage a minute-by-minute breathlessness. 16 photos.

Review:

Recounts in loving detail the standing Apollo epic . . . with verve and intelligence.
"The New York Times Book Review"
The power of A Man on the Moon truly astounded me. . . . I found myself transported, reminded of all that was wonderful about Apollo. I laughed and cried.
Dava Sobel, author of "Longitude" and "Galileos Daughter"
More inside stories, more details, recollections, and feelings of all the men who traveled to the moon than any other account of the Apollo program.
"The Christian Science Monitor"
