Forty years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first humans to both land and walk on the Moon. This was a defining moment in history and aptly described by Commander Armstrong as One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Mankind, clearly defining the magnitude of this achievement. But even more importantly, this was a defining moment for the United States, who had beaten the then Soviet Union to the Moon, thereby winning the Space Race, which was such a dominant theme of that time. This 40th anniversary book sanctioned by NASA can serve a number of purposes. It can remind all of us what we were capable of doing and can still do; it highlights the many individuals who were involved in making it happen; and it can be a salute to all the other astronauts involved in the overall Apollo project and its many successes. A beautiful collector's item, this round book has a tactile finish with the shape and texture of the moon. To take a virtual tour inside the pages of this book please refer to murraybooks.com

Foreword by Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot: It s important that we reflect upon and celebrate our experiences, to learn from them and to push for more small steps and giant leaps. One Small Step commemorates the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing and all of those individuals who helped make it a success. It inspires us to keep dreaming and reaching while saluting the mission and those who made it happen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and that it will rouse you to take at least one small step of your own.
