TEAM MOON: HOW 400,000 PEOPLE LANDED APOLLO 11 ON THE MOON, by Catherine Themmish
I will admit that I wasn’t too excited about reading this one, since non-fiction reading for pleasure usually isn’t my cup of tea. Boy, were my impressions wrong—what a fantastic book! When we think of the first men landing on the moon, we tend to think only of those men—and not all the men and women who were behind the actual missions that led up to that exciting event. I didn’t have any idea there were that many people involved. In addition to the vast amount of scientific information that is contained in this book, there are a great many personal accounts and stories that, along with the fantastic pictures, make this a truly enjoyable educational read.
