The Apollo Adventure

The Apollo Adventure: The Making of the Apollo Space Program and the Movie Apollo 13 by Jeffrey Kluger, 3/5

I expected this book to focus on the Apollo 13 incident and the making of the movie, so I was disappointed that Kluger spent most of it discussing less interesting (though undeniably historical) Apollo missions.  There was an absolute minimum of entertaining anecdotes sprinkled throughout, and hardly any insightful  info about the making of the movie.  I felt that, in an honest attempt to avoid retreading ground already covered in his book Apollo 13, Kluger stoops to using filler material and milking the franchise.
