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'?...

The fakers knew they could get away with anything after they fed us the magic bullet theory to explain away the necessary several shooters of JFK. People are still mystified by the physics that holds the moon out there in space. So why not three buildings brought down by fire, disappearing airplanes and passengers, stand down of the air force because of "confusion". Sigh. Kaysing takes the necessary heat generated by a society in un-warrented love with itself. Very embarrassing.

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.

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?
