David Whitehouse


‘Fast-paced and tremendously readable … What makes this book really stand out from other Apollo based books is the inclusion of long quotes from interviews with astronauts such as John Glenn (the first American to orbit Earth), Eugene Cernan (the last man to walk on the Moon) and, of course, Neil Armstrong himself.’ ***** Book of the Month ― BBC Sky at Night magazine

The book is at its most successful when Whitehouse gets out of the way of its protagonists, letting the astronauts and cosmonauts offer their own verbatim accounts of their often perilous – and occasionally fatal – missions. The real strength of this book is its tribute to the human qualities of these men – and they are all men, with the exception of the brief but gripping story of one female cosmonaut – who were willing to sacrifice so much. ― The Irish News

In the most authoritative book ever written about Apollo, David Whitehouse reveals the true drama behind the mission, telling the story in the words of those who took part based around exclusive interviews with the key players … [An] enthralling book ― All About Space


David Whitehouse’s masterly narration of what he calls ‘the inside story’ is profoundly gratifying. –– The Spectator
