This sumptuous book features the favourite images from all the Apollo Moon missions chosen by the astronauts themselves, with insightful commentary from many of them, revealing their
range of personalities. Even Neil Armstrong contributes, though his section is typically short and dry, in contrast to Michael Collins' more evocative words.

Both glorious full colour and black and white full page pictures (the latter conveying the starkness of the Moon very well and making for some of my favourite images) are splashed upon almost every page of this large format book with superb image reproduction.

With pictures ranging from the astronauts on the Moon, their spacecraft in orbit, candid shots of the astronauts on Earth or in space, and crowd-pleasers such as 'Earthrise', this brilliant and eminently affordable book is a perfect and poignant celebration of this important milestone in human history. It is easily one of the best Apollo books released this summer.
