"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 Galileo's 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
