The negative reviewers remind me of the "Comic Book Guy" from the Simpsons

You know the guy who attends Star Trek conventions and grills the actors about the various small holes in the plot.... The space geeks are really having a field day with some of the errors in the book. So be it. This is not a book for the most highly knowlegeable space geeks, anyway. What the book delivers is a compelling and very interesting drama that is far more personal (more quotes from astronauts and others in the program) than other books published at the time of this book's release. I'm glad Harry Hurt III wrote this... it was a good read and was very enjoyable.

Very interesting and informative

This is a great book as it talks from the point of view of the astronauts. However, I was quite disappointed to see the photographs deleted from the paper back version. These pictures do give an insight into the text.

The definitive book on the Apollo project.

This is a very unique work of non-fiction in which the author was able to carry the reader on the ride with the astronauts themselves. It gives us the exhilirating feeling as if we were the fourth man on that Apollo mission. It utilizes the knowledge we know from interviews with the heroes involved with the moon race and the technical information of the spacecraft used and it blends into a ride far more exciting that any other adventure. We share the excitement of liftoff, the suspense of the landing, and the final hurl of reentry that only the astronauts could have experienced
