I am an Aerospace Engineer that worked on the Apollo program at the Kennedy Space Center starting since 1970. I have a copy of the original NASA document that was the basis for this book. I can verify this this book is a very good reference book for the Saturn Five vehicle as well as the Apollo Spacecraft and the KSC facilities which were used to prepare the vehicle for flight. I am currently a Docent volunteer at the Kennedy Space Center Apollo Saturn Five rocket. I take my document with me to verify or refresh my memory while I am performing my Docent function.

This flight manual covers the configuration for Saturn V launch vehicle SA-503, flown for the Apollo 8 mission. All the Saturn Vs flown and currently on static display have minor internal and external variations for each launch. For example, the ullage rocket fairings on the S-IC/S-II interstage (first/second stage) were originally 8 on the first two flight vehicles (Apollos 4 and 6 (SA-501-502)), then reduced to 4 for Apollos 8-14 (SA-503-509), and removed completely for Apollos 15-17 and Skylab 1 (SA-510 throug SA-513; 514 and 515 never flew and became static displays). It won't detract the casual reader at all, and it is recommended for any space buff's library.

Learn all about the thousands and thousands of systems that made the Saturn V the most powerful and amazing rocket in history. Nothing else I have found comes close so if you want to know what the Apollo astronauts had to learn then this is the book for you!

Wonderful details! One of my favorite charts in this book (there are many many more) is the one plotting weight of Saturn V vs. time duration into flight. Its an incredible illustration of the amount of power it takes to launch such a massive rocket.

Good detailed description of this magnificent feat of engineering. It is a manual and by its nature not a story or highly descriptive. Good insight to the language and detail of the Saturn V rocket

This is authentic with the old fashioned type-face and complete with illustrations, instructions and descriptions. My college son loved it.

This is a great book for the lunar space junkie. It is a reprint of the actual book given to the Apollo 8 crew to familiarize them with their launch vehicle. You will get acronym overload, but in a good way! A great read...great info on exactly how that big beast worked!
