There are at least two shockingly bad captioning mistakes (Apollo 12 crew identified with Apollo 11 crew names. LM ANTARES - clearly in landing configuration - identified as drifting empty after returning from the surface). Other captions seem weak in relation to what is in the picture if you know a little more about this missions including a pair of pictures of the Apollo 13 emergency Lithium Hydroxide canister lash up - on Earth and the same in space - which is interesting to compare what the astronauts did from radioed instructions - but is then commented as an assembly of hoses with no reference to the crucial canister in the shot. I'm not being picky - it is poor editorial.
I have a vast collection of books about the Moon Landings and have many of thin content value that stay on the shelf for having SOMETHING new to say. I'm seriously considering not giving this book space - there was little new and I have doubts about any "new" facts I read given some mistakes in the text.
If you want photography shots - Michael Light's Full Moon is a far better introduction to spectacular moon photography. For all NASA supposedly cooperated in the making of this book - it comes a poor cousin - for all Stephen Hawking might offer in the introduction.
