Editorial Reviews


One of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2019-

"If you're looking for telling of the manned space program's story, you should start with James Donovan's Shoot for the Moon."

"Donovan's narrative is a well-crafted of the best in print."
Science Magazine

"Vividly readable"
Christian Science Monitor

"Donovan combines his masterful research skills and narrative gifts in recounting the full story of the most famous Apollo trip...Donovan's history is a powerfully written and irresistible celebration of the Apollo missions."
Booklist (starred review)

"Exceptionally researched, this exciting, sometimes harrowing book highlights the work not only of the pioneering astronauts but also of thousands of technicians and engineers. This is a perfect volume to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing and all that led up to it."
Publishers Weekly (starred)

"This account reads like an adventure story."
The Columbus Dispatch

"Donovan's account of Apollo 11 is a breath-stopping page-turner."
Michael Barnes, Austin-American Statesman

"Shoot for the Moon is a gripping account of the dangers, the challenges, and the sheer determination that defined not only Apollo 11, but also the Mercury and Gemini missions that came before it."―BookPeople

"Its breadth and detail will give you a new appreciation for just how complex and dangerous this mission was. You'll come away marveling that, against all odds, we put people on the motherf**in' moon!"
Austin Chronicle --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
