“A decade in the making, this book is based on hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews with each of the twenty-four moon voyagers, as well as those who contributed their brain power, training and teamwork on Earth."[1]

This book formed the basis of the television miniseries From the Earth to the Moon. It was released in paperback in 2007 by Penguin Books, ISBN 978-0-14-311235-8.
