This book explains how the Apollo crews learned to work on the lunar surface. Its lively and informative text draws heavily on transcripts and photographs to illustrate points. It puts the reader on the lunar surface with the astronauts, sharing their observations, excitement, and frustrations.

Many people who are interested in space exploration are too young to remember much about the events that led to the Apollo Program and the global excitement that accompanied the missions. Interest in the first lunar landing transcended all political, economic, and social borders. It is vitally important to revisit the roots of mankind's boldest exploration, examining the astronauts' observations, tallying the accuracy of our assumptions, and gaining new perspective for this century's missions.

Does anybody have an opinion and thoughts on this Heiken book? Is there anything in it that is not on the surface journal website, is the book worth buying?
