If I could, I'd give this book four and a half stars, since it is really not up to the standards of the previous editions. I gave it five stars, however, because others might not agree with my opinion on why it is not as good as the previous Mission Reports.
With the publication of this book, Robert Godwin and Apogee Books have provided at least one volume of reproduced NASA material covering all of the manned Apollo missions. As is obvious from the title, this latest offering, examines Apollo 17, the final mission to the moon. Apollo 17 was the last of the three long duration (3 days) missions and again featured the lunar rover, which greatly extended the area that the two astronauts could explore. In addition, this mission included the only non-pilot, scientist astronaut, a geologist in this case, to explore the moon. The mission was commanded by veteran astronaut, Gene Cernan who was making his third trip into space, geologist and rookie Harrison "Jack" Schmidt accompanied Cernan to the lunar surface as the Lunar Module pilot and Ron Evans was the Command Module pilot.
Like many of the other volumes in this NASA Mission Report series, the book opens with the usual NASA mission press kit. It is easy to tell that the author and his staff spent some time searching for some very clean originals, since compared to their earlier efforts, such as Apollo 8, the scanned in drawings are almost perfect. Since this mission was the last lunar landing mission, it seems that NASA produced a much larger and more detailed press kit compared to its earlier Apollo mission press kits.

This is the best Apollo mission report yet! In this volume you find the documents that concluded Mans greatest adventure. The CD gives more panoramas, and more photos than ever done by Godwin before!
At the end of Apollo, there were more reports about what was found and what was done on the Moon- so I know that there will be at least a couple more books with ALL the mission reports!
This volume has the information dealing with the plans for the mission as envisioned, and the preliminary results of what Apollo-17 yielded from the Moon. Ah.. if we had only gone back to the moon again and again!!!
I can't wait to see the next Apollo-17, volume II.

Finished my collection of Apollo series books by Apogee. The book arrived after 2 days of being shipped. Which is great. No tracking information was provided while in route.

This volume covers the final moon landing in December 1972 in great detail. All aspects of the flight are covered and a great CD ROM is included as a suppliment to the volume. Great reading and it makes the reader wish the Apollo program continued on to Apollo 18. We will have to wait for the next moon landing sometime in the next decade.
