"EXPLORING THE MOON is very well illustrated…All aficionados of the Apollo program will find much to appreciate in [this book].

From the reviews of the second edition:
"David Harland’s book is an honourable addition to the ranks. Exploring the Moon – The Apollo Expeditions is packed with photos, and features a historically detailed text backed by a thorough index. … If you want to know the exact order in which NASA’s Apollo astronauts surveyed particular zones of their landing sites, or which craters delivered the most interesting scientific clues about the origins of the Moon, then this is the book for you. … a fantastic resource for fans of the Apollo era." (Piers Bizony, BBC Sky at Night, July, 2008)
"A wealth of knowledge regarding the early days of manned space exploration. … Its high resolution photography brings a surface that few have seen before into crystal clarity." (James M. Busby, Space Times, Vol. 47 (3), 2008)
