"It's an engagingly written story with some fascinating insights... The photographs are beautifully reproduced in their original square format and perfectly show off the astronauts' often under-appreciated compositional skills, while the accompanying words make for a thought-provoking juxtaposition. This book may be only a slim volume, but it is still packed with plenty of stunning images to savour. It's a great visual record of this most remarkable of human achievements." -- Amateur Photographer Magazine
