I enjoyed the narrative, and the plethora of long quotes from participants of the Apollo 11 mission and some of the rocket scientists who made it possible. I continue to be amazed at the sheer gumption that took NASA from rockets failing on the pad to the creation of a tiny oasis that carried three men through the vacuum to the moon and back home again. In this divided time, I almost long for the shared national vision and sense of wonder that they all must have felt, even if it was ultimately only a manifestation of the Cold War. Only three stars because I found out, quite by accident, that the book is riddled with tiny errors of the esoteric variety that only true aficionados would notice. I didn't hear anything that I knew to be wrong, but knowing they were there ruined a little of my enjoyment.
