Wow! Kudos to World Spaceflight News for coming up with these great Apollo documents! For discovering the nitty-gritty technical details of the Apollo moon program spacecraft, these books are absolutely unbeatable. None of the glossy picture books and autobiographies from the last 30 years explain the inner workings of Apollo like these original NASA references.
Every page is clearly printed, and there are A TON OF SPECTACULAR schematics and similar drawings. There are a few muddy black and white old-style photographs, but luckily most all of the "illustrations" are drawings! I found that everything (text and drawings) was legible and understandable.
This Lunar Module reference is the first source I've ever seen that explains the equipment within the cramped layout of the LM crew compartment!
You won't compare this to a finely bound volume from a major publisher - but hey, this is the only way to get this "geeky" information. As a lifelong Apollo fanatic, I'm happy to get this material however it comes. I've searched the web for many hours, and I never found this book or anything like it on any website. It is, as they say, unique. Period.
If you love Apollo - you want this book. In fact, you want all three (Lunar Module, CSM, Saturn V) volumes. Highly recommended!
