    My personal favorite about Apollo is Michael Collins' (Command Module Pilot on Apollo 11) 'Carrying the Fire'. It's fairly personal and does a great job of describing the training process. Another good is by the guy who picked all the Apollo crew. A great book is A Man on the Moon by Andrew Chaikin which covers the whole Apollo program and gets into great detail about development, training, the astronauts and the missions. For a film you could try In The Shadow of the Moon from Ron Howard which is a mixture of archive footage and interviews with the astronauts.

Apollo: The Race to the Moon by Charles Murray and Catherine Bly Cox tells this story primarily through the lens of the NASA managers, scientists and Author: Jay Bennett. As an overview of the Apollo program, this book is adequate. But the emphasis in the title on the “ Most Famous Missions” is correct.

The first third of the book is a detailed description of Apollo 1 and the fire that took three Astronauts lives and the subsequent impact that had on design as well as management changes/5(). In his latest book, Apollo’s Legacy: Perspectives on the Moon Landings, he doesn’t so much as recount the history behind the Apollo program, but examines the impact that it.

I have a growing collection of books about the Apollo program. Apollo, The Race To The Moon, by Murray and Cox, is very much unlike the others. It focuses on the cast of thousands who brought the program to life, instead of on the more famously well-known astronauts/5.

Eisenhower's administration as a three-person spacecraft to follow the one-person Project Mercury. The book is based on interviews with 23 of the 24 astronauts who flew to the moon during the Apollo program. Chaikin's book is fun and well researched, and packed full of tidbits of information.

Smithsonian Books has released Apollo’s Legacy: Perspectives on the Moon Landings by space historian Roger D. Launius. In the book, Launius explores the many-faceted stories told about the meaning of the Apollo program and how it altered American society.

The Apollo missions marked the first time human beings left Earth’s orbit and visited another world, and thus they loom. This book adds substantially to our knowledge base about the Apollo program’s conduct and accomplishments and provides a firm path for further progress.

For a really good technical history of the programme, I'd recommend Chariots for Apollo: a history of manned lunar.
