520 1  "David Woods tells the exciting story of how the Apollo 
       flights were conducted by following a virtual flight to 
       the Moon and back. From launch to splashdown, he hitches a
       ride in the incredible spaceships that took men to another
       world, exploring each step of the journey and detailing 
       the enormous range of disciplines, techniques and 
       procedures the Apollo crews had to master. While 
       describing the tremendous technological accomplishment 
       involved, he adds the human dimension by calling on the 
       testimony of the people who were there at the time." "In 
       How Apollo Flew to the Moon there is wealth of accessible 
       material: the role of the powerful Saturn V, the reasoning
       behind trajectories, the day-to-day concerns of human and 
       spacecraft health between two worlds, and the sheer daring
       involved in traveling to the Moon in the mid-twentieth
