    Think you've read everything there is about the moon flights? Think again!

    In 1998, the landmark television miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon" was first broadcast. In 12 episodes, it told the daring story of Project Apollo-NASA's program to put humans on the moon. This book provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of each episode of the miniseries and covers Apollo from start to finish, and then some! More than a simple episode guide, this companion reviews the choices the filmmakers made regarding the actors, special effects, and historical accuracy. This book shows readers what each episode got right, got wrong, and what they didn't tell you about each of these historic missions.

    Providing readers with a completely novel and unique approach to Project Apollo, this companion to the miniseries is packed with information.

    Covers all manned Apollo missions, the creation of the lunar module, the Apollo 1 fire and aftermath, the personal and professional highs and lows of the astronauts and key NASA personnel, including Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean, Pete Conrad, Al Worden, Donn Eisele, Wernher von Braun, Deke Slayton, Alan Shepard, James Webb, and others. Also includes descriptions of the author's personal interactions with some of the Apollo astronauts.

    Bonus: Includes an in-depth interview with Andrew Chaikin, author of A Man on the Moon, the book that was the basis for the entire miniseries. Also includes 35 stunning images.
