The inside, lesser-known story of NASA's boldest and riskiest mission: Apollo 8, mankind's first journey to the Moon on Christmas in A riveting account of three heroic astronauts who took one of the most dangerous space flights ever, from the New York Times bestselling author of Shadow Divers.

In early , the Apollo program was on shaky footing. President Kennedy's end-of-decade deadline to put a man on the Moon was in jeopardy, and the Soviets were threatening to pull ahead in the space race.

By August , with its back against the wall, NASA decided to scrap its usual methodical approach and shoot for the heavens. With just four months to prepare--a fraction of the normal time--the agency would send the first men in history to the Moon.

With a focus on astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders, and their wives and children, this is a vivid, gripping, you-are-there narrative that shows anew the epic danger involved, and the singular bravery it took, for man to leave Earth for the first time--and to arrive at a new world.

As someone who did not live through the time, I have very much enjoyed the weaving the tale of American history with the personal story of going to the moon less.

Before I listened to this book, when I thought of space missions and the moon, I thought of the moon landing and Apollo 11 - the planting of the American flag, Neil Armstrongs comment While I remember Apollo 8, I had no idea of its importance in laying the groundwork for future missions.

While I always thought that astronauts as a group were brave, I never really thought about their individual stories, their personalities, the affect on their families, especially their spouses, the intense training or what went into preparing for their mission.

Even though I knew the efforts of NASA to prepare, plan, build, test and manage from mission control had to be enormous, I never gave it a lot of thought.

All of that changed in such an impactful way for me while listening to this absolutely amazing account. I was captivated by the intimate look that I got of the crew - Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders, how they grew up and became astronauts, how they met and fell in love with their wives, how their wives were impacted by what their husbands were doing, the sacrifice of family time.

The wives of these men deserve a lot of credit and are heroes in their own right. Their personal stories are moving. I was surprised that some of the technical and scientific parts were made understandable and interesting and amazed at the scope of things that went into making decisions.

The way the mission is brought into historical context is simply stunning. I loved the Epilogue finding out what the crew did afterwards and where they were in their lives at the time of the 50th anniversary of the mission.

This is a story of extraordinary men and their families, an extraordinary event in history. The narration by Ray Porter is absolutely wonderful.

Thanks to my Goodreads friend and book buddy, Diane S, whose terrific review led me to this book. View all 59 comments. So why then did I not want this book to end, finished it ready eyes and gave it all the stars?

Well for one, I'm firmly convinced this author cannot write a bad book, can make any subject interesting.

It's also because though this is about Apollo 8, it is also about real men, their wives, families and our country in the tumultuous year of Kurson includes the three astronauts backgrounds, their training, their flight, but Space, planets, NASA are not usually subjects to which I gravitate.

Kurson includes the three astronauts backgrounds, their training, their flight, but also what they were thinking, eating, even how they had to go to the bathroom.

Their wives and their backgrounds, fears for their husbands. All the terrible events of that year and how divided our country was by the Vietnam war, and racial issues.

Kurson let's the reader in on little tidbits of interest, making for a more personal read. His writing, this story, taking and immersing the reader back into this time, these men and others at NASA who were in control central.

At books end Kurson himself takes over, explaining how he became interested in this story, his research, his interviews with these three men who at the time of his writing were all still alive.

This was the only crew of astronauts who all stayed married to their original spouses. Teary eyed? You'll have to read it yourself to find out why.

It's, imo, fantastic as was the narration by Ray Porter. View all 15 comments. Shelves: adventure , 5-star , science-fiction , non-fiction.

Absolutely loved this book. A meticulous, uplifting pardon the pun and beautifully written account of Apollo 8 and the Astronauts who made Mans first Journey to the moon I knew when one of my friends here at Goodreads whose reviews I respect and love reviewed and rated this book 5 stars that it was one I wanted to get my hands on sooner rather than later and was so happy to have sourced this one on Audible.

I read this along with my husband and we discussed and marvelled over the details Absolutely loved this book. I read this along with my husband and we discussed and marvelled over the details every day and to be honest I am going to miss the suspense and drama and company of this wonderful book.

Robert Kurson tells the story of the Apollo 8 and its crew and their amazing and riveting first mission to the Moon.

This book reminded me in ways of my reaction to the book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption and while both books are totally different, I wondered going into this one did I really want to read a book about Rockets and space and the moon and yet the moment I started listening to this book I was hooked, I enjoyed reading about the men and their families, the challenges that they and their families and NASA faced with this mission.

What it meant to Science and the average Joe all over the world. I wasn't very familiar with the Apollo 8 and the Astronauts but obviously knew they flew a very successful mission and yet the suspense created in this account had me totally gripped and at times so anxious for these guys although I already knew the outcome of the mission.

On finishing this book I was as proud of the Rocket men as every American must have been back on Christmas This is my second book by this author.

Really enjoyed the sense of time and place and the reminders of events and people mentioned in the book. Above all I loved reading and discussing this one with my husband who is a huge fan of all things space and science and he found this an entertaining and informative read too.

The audio read by Ray Porter and Robert Kurson and was extremely easy to listen to and the narration really added to my enjoyment of this book.

This was the record breaking mission of Apollo Eight. The first men who; left Earth's orbit, flew to the Moon, orbited the Moon, saw the far-side, mapped the landing site, and returned safely to Earth.

The year was a disaster for America and the world. Dissent, revolution, the assassinations of Luther King, Jr. If this happened the Russians would remain first in all aspects of the Space Race.

With only four months for planning everyone prepared to beat the Russians to the Moon. It all began with President Kennedy Apollo had a single goal, perhaps the greatest and most audacious ever conceived: to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to Earth.

In , President John F. Kennedy had committed the United States to achieving this goal by the end of the decade. Never had a more inspiring promise been made to the American people—or one that could be so easily verified.

This is a marvelously crafted record of not just the Apollo Eight flight, but on all the newsworthy events of that drove the astronauts to achieve their mission.

Robert Kurson takes the reader inside the mission with words that describe the incredible power and complexities of the Saturn V rocket that astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders rode to the moon on their incredible voyage in December He describes the lives of the men as they were growing up, how they came to be astronauts, their relationships with their wives, how they interacted during this spectacular mission, and their lives afterward.

I was eleven years old at the time of the mission and my memory evokes only that family gathered around the TV and that I knew that something important was taking place.

It was an aggressive move by NASA to jump ahead of the Soviets in the space race, who had been first to launch a manmade object that orbited the earth Sputnik , the first to do a circumlunar unmanned orbit Luna 1 and the first to land a probe on the moon Luna 2 and the first to take pictures of the far side of the moon Luna 3.

Riots broke out on college campuses and after Martin Luther King, Jr. Politics seemed polarized and when Robert Kennedy was assassinated, many people were convinced that the country had gone crazy.

It was not a panacea, but still, it was a moment of intense national pride and satisfaction. The most fascinating section of the book for me dealt with how the human perspective of our blue planet changed with the pictures that Bill Anders took of Earthrise.

These men traveled , miles and found the moon a lonely and isolated world of blacks and grays, while their habitable and troubled world beckoned out the window of their spacecraft, beautiful and mysterious.

An environment that has cradled man since his origin and nurtured his biology and social adaptation, a world that is too often taken for granted.

Against a backdrop of infinity, there came an almost mystical vision of our total dependence on 'the good earth' and our interconnectedness on this fragile blue planet, our home.

Kurson provides just enough technical details to interest the reader and effectively relay the story without bogging down the reader with information that most people would find unnecessary and potentially boring.

While my favorite part of the book was the amazing story Kurson tells, I also found some solace in the realization that the United States has previously survived a politically contentious time period similar to the one we are currently experiencing.
