Críticas:

"[A] readable introduction to the first years of America's leap into space."-Publishers Weekly Publishers Weekly "Authors Burgess and French are even-handed and equitable, and have done an excellent job in covering a vast expanse of material... The opportunity to get the true stories from the astronauts themselves is a luxury that will sadly not be available forever, and In the Shadow of the Moon has done an excellent job in gathering and eliciting the stories of these men, not just the 'official reports,' but the personal touches that render them more human... The authors have a touch for weaving revealing and captivating personal narratives amidst the nuts-and-bolts space history."-Michael Patrick Brady, PopMatters.com -- Michael Patrick Brady PopMatters.com "French and Burgess present a first-rate, detailed, and very personal account of the space race to the moon ... Strongly recommended both as a study of the social interactions among this unique group of people and as a gripping series of anecdotes that describe the exciting, dangerous steps behind the successful moon landing."-CHOICE -- W.E. Howard III CHOICE "This book has everything you ever wanted to know about the astronauts that paved the way for the first Moon landing. Rarely does one get the entire information of Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programmes, encased in one book, about the men who entered the dangerous and untried realm of flying off the Earth."-Jeff Green, Liftoff -- Jeff Green Liftoff

Críticas:

"For both space superpowers, human spaceflight was filled with remarkable triumphs as they strove to place the first person on the moon. There were also devastating tragedies to overcome. Through diligent research and pivotal interviews the authors recount that extraordinary era in this superbly crafted and eminently readable book." Rex Hall, MBE, former president of the British Interplanetary Society "My husband told the authors stories about his Apollo 8 mission that he had never even told me!" Valerie Anders, wife of Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders "President Kennedy's goal of landing a man on the Moon was achieved only because of 15 trailblazing Gemini and Apollo missions flown during four dynamic years of trial and discovery described in this meticulously researched book. [In the Shadow of the Moon] truly captures the spirit and culture of those who won the race to the Moon." Dave Scott, commander of the Apollo 15 mission "Our lives and those of future generations were forever transformed by the events so vividly related in this book. These were the tense, often inspiring days of pioneering human space travel, and the authors are to be congratulated for their unerring portrayals of many larger-than-life personalities involved in that historic endeavour." Cece Bibby, first woman to work at the Mercury launch pad

Descripción University of Nebraska Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In the Shadow of the Moon tells the story of the most exciting and challenging years in spaceflight, with two superpowers engaged in a titanic struggle to land one of their own people on the moon. While describing awe-inspiring technical achievements, the authors go beyond the missions and the competition of the space race to focus on the people who made it all possible. Their book explores the inspirations, ambitions, personalities, and experiences of the select few whose driving ambition was to fly to the moon. Drawing on interviews with astronauts, cosmonauts, their families, technicians, and scientists, as well as rarely seen Soviet and American government documents, the authors craft a remarkable story of the golden age of spaceflight as both an intimate human experience and a rollicking global adventure. From the Gemini flights to the Soyuz space program to the earliest Apollo missions, including the legendary first moon landing, their book draws a richly detailed picture of the space race as an endeavor equally endowed with personal meaning and political significance.
