However I found the book to be lacking in detail when it comes to specific technological problems and how they were solved. One has to go to the more detailed sources (NASA press kits, 1st-person accounts, etc.) for the good stuff.
The book is written in dry, documentary fashion. It is factual (a NASA publication) but not an entertaining read.
Again, an excellent source for facts, figures and an complete overview of the massive project that is Saturn.
