Good documentary of Saturn program
on May 13, 2007
I'm an apollo nut and very much into the technical details of the program. This book is a good overview of the Saturn project and an excellent place to start if you are just beginning your adventure into history.
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.
