Eight Years to the Moon: The History of the Apollo Missions

We rated this book:


This is an amazing, interesting, and important book about the history of the Apollo space missions. There is so much information and history about the missions that it is almost overwhelming, but in a good way. It is like many different books in one. The book covers the time before the moon landing and looks at the people and scientists who had to figure out how to get the missions to succeed. It explains the science, the challenges, the thinking, and the problem solving in ways that make me want to become a scientist. There are so many different perspectives, and even people who are not space fans will find the information here interesting and informative. This book is well-written and readers of all ages can get something out of it. There are lots of great pictures and descriptions and stories throughout the book, and each time you pick it up something else will stand out. The way the book is written pulls you into the stories of the people behind the history. It is a long book, and not the kind that you sit down and read all at once, but it made me keep coming back to it. I strongly recommend this book for anyone and everyone who wants to learn something new.
