A Man on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin (Unsigned)
“The authoritative masterpiece” (L. A. Times) on the Apollo space program and NASA’s journey to the moon.
This acclaimed portrait of heroism and ingenuity captures a watershed moment in human history. The astronauts themselves have called it the definitive account of their missions. On the night of July 20, 1969, our world changed forever when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon. Based on in-depth interviews with twenty-three of the twenty-four moon voyagers, as well as those who struggled to get the program moving, A Man on the Moon conveys every aspect of the Apollo missions with breathtaking immediacy and stunning detail. Softcover.
A Man on the Moon is also the basis for the acclaimed 1998 miniseries produced by Tom Hanks, From the Earth to the Moon, now available again for streaming on HBO.
(Note: All remaining copies of this softcover book have slight dings on some of the corners, but it is still a fantastic read and a great historical resource.)
