Editorial Reviews

Review

"Readers in a quest of a gripping and thoughtful paperback account should set their coordinates for Dan Parry's Moonshot, which is far better written that your average "accompanying the major television factual-drama" book." Daily Telegraph

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was excellent - informative and concise, brilliantly written and generally a great read.

I was surprised to discover how little I actually knew about the moon landing before reading Moonshot, but through the events detailed and the descriptions of the different personalities involved, I now feel well-educated! Definitely a book worth buying.

Format: Paperback
Moonshot will show you the behind-the-curtains of the travel to moon. It's well written and inspiring. Attending the technical details or the human history, you will find interesting data and anecdotes of the most surprising travel of all time.

Kennedy proposed the USSR to make the trip togheter, becuse he was trilled of the high expenses. But he did in a speech the day before he was killed, so it never become reality. The main on-board computer had 32Kb memory, but it was enought to compute their position and trajectroy, even if the commander must take their actual relative position... blocking one eye and using a sextant in the other, like any XVI Century marine and using apparent still stars as referene... This kind of data will jump from page to page.

Interesting reading, highly recommended.
