Comments Genesis: The Story of Apollo 8: The First Manned Flight to Another World

  • Darkpool

    I'm probably being a bit mean with the stars here, but aspects of this book really grated. It seemed to me to be a bit too "God bless America!" By this I'm not criticising the inclusion of the historical context in which the space race occurred, but some of the narrative comment that seemed a little too much in the style "and thus, freedom, Christianity and the American way triumphed over evil commie dictatorships!" This might play very well to a American audience in 1998, but I found it rather [...]

    This is the only book-length account in the mainstream about one of the most audacious missions in space history--the first human flight to the moon's orbit: Apollo 8.Published in 1998, this finally makes strides to address a mission which will always be in the shadow of its successor, Apollo 11--the first lunar landing mission. By undertaking this book, Zimmerman wants to do the right thing for space history, and his sense of mission is clear in many of his descriptions.Zimmerman gives a good a [...]

    Genesis: The Story Of Apollo 8, The First Manned Flight To Another World by Robert Zimmerman is the novelised true story of the first manned mission to the moon. It describes to us both the mission itself as well as the lives of each of the three astronauts who flew: Commander Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders.Having just finished watching “From the Earth to the Moon” series, I was familiar with the mission however the book gave a lot more insight and background than the TV series eve [...]


  • Assaad Mrad

    As a science and space enthusiast, I really liked this book as you can see I finished it in less than 48 hours. Not for its technical input but for its philosophical view of the human exploration Robert Zimmerman is trying to describe. As can be seen in most of the reviews, there is Christian and capitalist American bias which I hope most of the readers are mature enough to see. At one instance, Robert Zimmerman was openly criticizing the unwillingness of future explorers to publicly let know of [...]

    I had always thought of the US space program as an example of great engineering achievement. Of course politics played a role, as it does in everything in history. I just didn't realize how deeply seated the political drivers were.In fact, the story Zimmerman spins is one in which Cold War one-up-manship was the real motivation behind extending our technological boundaries. But he also weaves in his tapestry the human element, showing how the backgrounds of each of the characters crashes togethe [...]


  • Christopher Hivner

    I probably liked this book more than some would because I am utterly fascinated with space exploration, especially the space race of the 1960s. Genesis was more than just the story of the mission that took 3 American astronauts into lunar orbit. It also gives you background on the men and their personalities, as well as insight into how their wives felt about and accepted the dangerous missions they went on. The author also interweaves the turbulent history that was going on around the world. 19 [...]


  • Bookworm Amir

    I started reading this book - well this was the first BIG book I ever touched on. I was 10 years old when I started reading this, and ended up finishing it about a year or two years later. It really was complicated language for a 10 year old to comprehend. But I took the challenge anyways.Now at 19, I am finally adding this book at ! haha, good Lord. This book, well, from what I gather now, is an epic story I guess. Was it good, or bad? All I know is that its got about 450 pages.Judging from the [...]


  • Nicholas

    A mix of space, biography, social history of America in the 60's and a bit of vomit. In fact probably less than half the book is about the Apollo 8 mission. The book is set in the context of the cold war; the reason for going to the moon in the first place. But perhaps a bit to much on the Berlin wall although the parallel soviet space endeavours were interesting. It did give a fascinating insight into how the opening verses of Genesis were chosen to be read from the moon, and a glimpse as to wh [...]


  • Tomasz Boguszewicz

    Trochę techniki, trochę reportażu rodzinnego, trochę tła społeczno-politycznego, ale żadna z tych sfer nie jest opisana dobrze. Bardzo brakuje perpsktywy ludzi, któzy czuwali na ziemi nad przebiegiem misji, nie ma nic o przygotowaniach, problemach, etc. Zbyt wiele nacisku położono na odczucia subiketywne astronautów w czasie lotu, które nie są ani odkrywcze, ani specjalnie ciekawe. Ogólnie, rozczarowanie


  • Rose

    The author loves Christianity and hates Communism. Apart from his agenda-pushing, I enjoyed his straightforward storytelling style of writing. He did a good job situating the Apollo 8 astronauts in the bigger historical picture of the American and Russian space programs, as well as world events.


  • Clay Davis

    I liked this book very much. The author humanizes the astronauts and defines the the Superpowers very well.


  • Carrie Lindsey

    I enjoyed this book as it gives a personal inside view of the events of the Apollo 8 mission. I liked that the author wove the world politics as the time into the development of the book.


  • Snakeman

    Interesting Story.Readable facts and figures.Liked the commentary on the world at the time as well as the main story of the space flight.


  • Bill

    As a NASA geek from the 60's, Genesis was a look back at one of the great events in human history. Zimmerman contrasts Apollo 8 with the tumultuous events of 1968 throughout the book.


  • Eric Tsavdar

    If you are a space nut like me, you're going to enjoy this detailed look at the Apollo 8 mission. Awesome perspectives.


  • -eric-

    My all-time favorite book on the Apollo era. THe story of the Borman/Lovell/Anders mission never fails to engross me, and I have read it many times


  • Koleesa

    One of my favorite books on the space program so far!


  • John W. Christman

    Story of Apollo 8This book brought back many memories. That is why I gave the book 5 stars. Especially from launch through moon insertion.
