While reading Apollo it felt like Murray and Cox realized that they tried to accomplish too much and then tried to save what they had already done. The result is an informative book, that also leaves many questions unanswered I cannot help but believe that there are better books out there about the Apollo Program. There must be books that are well written and well organized, and present the path and the people that made the moon landing possible. Apollo makes this attempt, but it falls short.

Murray and Cox wrote by far the single best book on Apollo
Murray and Cox wrote by far the single best book on Apollo. It covers the political decisions, the engineering, the people, and the history. The engineering is explained in a clear and non-condescending way that non-technical people can understand, and yet it's thorough enough to interest scientists and engineers as well. Since the majority of books on Apollo deal with the project and missions with an astronaut bias, it is extremely refreshing to be presented with it from an engineering and technological one through the characters of the enginners and flight controllers. It is full of anecdotes that inspire and amaze.
