Format: Paperback
Bill Kaysing (1922-2005) has written a number of "freedom" books that question established values: e.g., Eat Well For 99 Cents a Meal, Great Hideouts of the West: An Idea Book for Living Free, How to live in the new America, Bill Kaysing's Freedom Encyclopedia, etc.

He explains the origin of the book thusly: "During the summer of 1969, I was living in a small house on the beach of Santa Barbara... But despite a seven year stint at Rocketdyne, the firm that built the main propulsion units for Apollo, I could not work up the least interest in the entire astrophysical circus... I decided I did not believe that Armstrong, Collins and Aldrin or anyone else was going to the moon. And consequently, I could not generate the least enthusism for watching a phony performance." (Pg. 7)

He continues, "As the years passed, I found myself comparing the Apollo flights to many other incidents in American life. Watergate was an outstanding example... The energy 'crisis' was another Apollo simulation... Now was the time to ask some questions of NASA... like, why didn't the astronauts make some visible signal from the moon?... Why is it that NASA's Apollo records are not classified, but are also not available to the general public?... Why did so many astronauts end up as executives of large corporations? Was this their real reward for the moon 'trip'?...

When I realised I'd dropped $15 for this I could have wept. I want to believe in conspiracy theories however books like this do not help the cause.
It's a thin tome to begin with; in addition, a number of the pages are taken up entirely with (often irrelevant) photographs, looking as it they've been taken on some ancient old busted camera and photocopied a dozen times.
This is an interesting topic however this book in no way does it justice. Purchase something else for your money.

Format: Paperback
This, simply speaking, is the most utterly ridiculous book ever written. I mourn the loss of the time I spent reading this.... thing. I will not even call this rambling snarl of images and text a book. That this man could shame the Apollo astronauts who went to the moon, the astronauts who gave their lives in the quest to get there, and the hundreds of thousands of Americans involved in sending us to the moon, is appalling.
To speak about the pseudo-scientific "evidence" that he presents is a waste of time. However, if this person's ideas have intrigued you, I will briefly refute three of the most popular ideas:
1) The flag is waving. We faked the Apollo program and shot it on a stage in Nevada.
The flag was stiffened with wire on the back to give it the apperance of waving, since there is no air on the Moon. Plans to do this can even be found in books written before we went to the Moon! Movies where the flag is actually waving only appear where the Apollo astronauts were struggling to stick the flag in the soil, and as a result, the thin wires vibrated.
2) There is no blast crater underneath the lunar module. We faked the Apollo program and shot it on a stage in Nevada.
There is no blast crater underneath the lunar module because, as can be found in countless books and websites, the lunar module's engine was shut down about five feet above the lunar surface. A long probe extended from the end of each footpad. When they touched the ground, the engine was shut down to prevent thrust from bouncing back from the surface and damaging the LM.
3) There are no stars in the pictures from the moon. We faked the Apollo program and shot it on a stage in Nevada.'
Have you ever tried to take a picture of a bright object and a dim one at the same time?

Format: Paperback
Think about it for a minute. During the 1960's, our computers were almost as big as rooms - even in 1970, college students who majored in computer science had to access one main campus computer using a stack of punch cards in exact order!! Tell me that we had the technology to do all the work for the elaborate moon missions when it took NASA over 2 years to correct the O-ring malfunction that caused the explosion of a shuttle. Now if it takes that long to fix an O-ring, how could NASA have perfected the lunar landing module in 3 months. That's the time frame from the Fox program's great file footage of an uncontrollable lunar lander to the launch time of the 1st moon mission. Furthermore,if we had mastered the science of protecting humans from the extreme radiation of the Van Allen belt, why haven't we touted that achievement? And why did our nation not volunteer to give that technology to the USSR when Chernobyl melted down? Actually, the reason we can't fake it to the moon these days is that our communications/satellite tracking would expose the trickery. Finally, thousands of people worked on bits and pieces of the NASA moon project, but how many of those people actually saw the whole thing come together? Our nation was preoccupied with the bloody Vietnam War at the time and still in mourning for JFK. He promised to have a man on the moon by the end of the 60's, and (wouldn't you know) we did it. If you ask me, it is more believable to think that NASA faked the moon landings than it is to ignore all the reasonable & valid questions that cast doubt that we pulled off 6 flights to the moon and back.
