This fascinating book contains of most thorough examination of man’s greatest adventure yet — the 1969 Apollo trip to the moon. Chaikin spent years interviewing every surviving astronaut and many other important people who were in the twelve-year programme to put a man on the moon. This book is a combination of biography and adventure. The life of each astronaut is followed from childhood to the surface of the moon and beyond. The author has attempted to discover how the experience of visiting another world has changed them. As gripping as this book is, it lacks the analysis of what the Apollo mission was for. As a story of human achievement, though, it succeeds brilliantly.


This beautifully illustrated book details the history of domesticated breeds of animals. When completely wild animals roamed the earth, people began the process of selecting animals that they needed. Some were for food while others (such as sheep and cattle) also provided clothes and shoes. As society developed and people began moving between continents such as Europe and Asia, new breeds and animals evolved. At the beginning of the 20th century there were 230 breeds of cattle in western Europe alone. But by 1988, only thirty breeds of cattle were left in large numbers, seventy were extinct and the rest greatly reduced. This book celebrates the survivors with photographs of them. Now all of us can enjoy these beautiful animals.
