"Harrison and Bednar's rich narrative serves to make the moon landing an inclusive event in human history. Told through a diverse set of characters from every continent, they deftly explores the intersectional impact of humankind's biggest step."-- "Zara Stone, journalist and author of The Future of Science is Female"
"The messages of hope and inspiration in this book are very much of a time, but they are also timeless. Maybe they speak to the ability humans have to overcome seemingly impossible challenges...but apparently only when we feel like it. As we stand at the new crossroads of space exploration and look forward, perhaps we should glance backward, too, and remember from whence we came. Because Apollo set the bar high. Very, very high."-- "Geoff Notkin, President of the National Space Society"

I was drawn to this book because, rather than centering on the astronauts - and I’ve read scores of book about and by them - the subjects of this book were those of varying cultures on earth who observed the landing from afar, like I did.
What I didn’t know when I stumbled on this book in Kindle format, is that it was clearly written for adolescents, not so much for adults.
For that target audience, it is quite well done and, therefore, important.
But thinking as an adult, and a retired journalist to boot, I wanted a much more in-depth report of the experiences of these people, who are by now my age.
