I’ve just finished reading “A Man on the Moon” by Andrew Chaikin, a book about the Apollo missions. As a Teenager studying science during the Apollo years, I was absolutely enthralled at the time. This book (published in 1994) is interesting, as it concentrates on the people, rather than the technology. The author spent 8 years researching and then interviewing the people involved. The book is therefore a study of the personalities and motivations of the lunar astronauts and their interaction with those around then. Well worth a read.
