Book Review of Apollo 13 : Lost Moon

Apollo 13 : Lost Moon

Helpful Score: 1

The blow-by-blow account of NASA's third attempt to land a man on the moon as told by the mission commander himself. It is a classic truth-is-stranger-than-fiction tale that leaps from the pages in a nonstop page-turner that became a Hollywood blockbuster and popularized the term "Failure is Not an Option". This is an easy, enjoyable read. The book should be required reading for every middle school student.
