Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unabridged CDs ? 18 hours, 14 CDs

A richly detailed and dramatic account of one of the greatest achievements of humankind.

Review:

"In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, historian Nelson offers a compelling account of the Apollo 11 mission, creating such an authentic retelling that listeners will find themselves sweating the outcome right until the very moment that Neil Armstrong sets foot on the lunar surface. Richard McGonagle delivers a rich and layered performance as he navigates through the mix of interviews, anecdotes and declassified documents and renders the central figures as endearing and heroic as they were in their heyday. A fascinating and compulsive listening experience. A Viking hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 20). (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
