Customer Reviews

Wow this is a bad book.
justin gravatt
Kaysing asserts that the door of the LEM is too small to permit an astronaut wearing the bulky Apollo spacesuit to enter or leave.
John McConnell
Kaysing was contracted to write an outlandish tome that would make fun of the theory, showing how ridiculous it is.

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
The naivete of the arguments presented in this book is truly astounding. Even if one is inclined to believe the more convoluted of the "proofs" (which have long since been debunked by people who - unlike Kaysing - ARE experts in their fields), many others are easily refuted by a 9-year-old with a passing interest in space flight. For example, the "flapping flag" proof still gives me a belly laugh. Kaysing apparently doesn't understand that the flag was wired to appear as though it waved in the absense of a lunar atmosphere! Of course, the moon rocks and soil have been studied around the world and are universally accepted as authentic. Interestingly, several astronauts (Gordon Cooper, Scott Carpenter, et al.) have an axe to grind with NASA and yet have never suggested the moon landings were faked (they fear being shot by CIA agents, no doubt). Most of all the Soviets would have been the first to call America's bluff. But no, they kept quiet too. SO, this is an INTERNATIONAL conspiracy involving not only the 100,000+ people involved in Apollo from NASA down to the worker on the assembly lines at Grumman and North American (Apollo contractors) AND the international geological community AND the Soviet Union. Kinda leaves one breathless.

Format: Paperback
Bill Kaysing is the grandmaster of the moon hoax game. For the uninitiated, Kaysing and a happy band of "investigative journalists" believe that NASA faked all of the moon missions for one reason or another.
Ironically, this book began as a satire of the moon hoax theory. Kaysing was contracted to write an outlandish tome that would make fun of the theory, showing how ridiculous it is. But, the story goes, as he researched his quarry, he became convinced that NASA had indeed defrauded everybody and that the astronauts never got farther from earth than an airplane.
I won't go into Kaysing's "proof" of all this, because there is none. His creativity, however, can be amusing. Kaysing writes that while we thought we were watching moon walkers bound along the moon's surface 250,000 miles from earth, they were actually getting down in Las Vegas girlie bars. His evidence? He has a full-page spread of an exotic dancer. Of course, we don't see any astronauts, but the dancer sure is nice to look at.
Then there are the personal schedules. Kaysing gives us what he believes were the astronauts' activities on earth during the moon flights. One of my favorites is the "Guilt Therapy" sessions, obviously for whomever was suffering pangs from defrauding us all. Did these schedules come on official NASA letterhead? Were they developed by government officials? No, they came straight from Kaysing's imagination--but what the heck.
Bill gets ugly with his original editor. He reprints a letter from the woman where she tells him that his manuscript just isn't written very well, and therefore she cannot publish it. I guess Bill never received a rejection letter before, because he concludes that this is proof she is in cahoots with NASA to suppress his efforts to expose the truth.
