If you have ever wondered what it would be like to go to the moon, this book will take you there. Go with Astonaut James Irwin on Apollo 15 to explore the moon. From lift off to splash down, it's like being right there on top of the massive Saturn V rocket, or having fun on the lunar rover. "To Rule the Night" captures in brilliant detail the beauty and awe inspiring view of seeing the earth from 250,000 miles out.

Format: Hardcover
The chapters about the Apollo 15 mission ( and the LTA-8 tests ) are terrific and factually correct ( unlike so many newer books on Apollo ). On the personal side, both Irwin and Worden were on the verge of divorces during their training, and Worden did divorce. It is easy to see how the constant training and travel could and did lead to the breakup of so many astronaut marriages.

Excellent and highly inspirational book, I especially recommend it for teenage boys. Good for motivating young men to do right.

I loved this book since the author James Irwin personally signed my other similar book when he attended the rocket firing at Aerojet General back in 1974. This book I bought to have a second one for my family.
