Summary of A Man on the Moon Summary of A Man on the Moon Reviews for A Man on the Moon An Excerpt from A Man on 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.

"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
