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.

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.

Very Informative and interesting book. These guys risked their lives going to the moon to benefit the world. Then after returning, have to Go before congress because they carried some stamps to cancel on the moon. This was part of their personal PPK kit that didn't affect the flight at all. Then, as usual, the Government has to make a mountain out of a molehill. This was a minor thing that shouldn't have been mentioned. The amount of money that would have been made was just a drop in the bucket compared to the scientific and technologies gained by this mission. I'm sure it cost the taxpayers lot more money just for congress to investigate it than the astronauts could have ever made on the stamps. They did a good job and represented our country very well. Our Government should take note.

I was the co-pilot of the Photo Helo that covered the landing of 15 off of Hawaii. I met Jim a couple of months before I left the Navy when he was introducing his book in San Diego. Needless to say, I cherish his message and autograph. Page 109. Last sentence, mid-page . Near disaster. We lost sight of the module because of clouds. Fortunately, our pilot had extraordinary experience! Mission complete. Oh, but stories to tell. Mine? Never to forget!

Excellent book to read. BEWARE of Amazon's description when you first look at the book, and all the options. The cover page has the book title but below, it says it was Inscribed and signed by Jim Erwin on the end page. The copy I got was not signed. I think that Amazon needs to take that info off of the page for this book and allow buyers to read each item description rather than assuming that the book was signed.
