A Man on the Moon
by Andrew Chaikin
"Very special thanks to Andy Chaikin, who wrote "A Man on the Moon" on which our series is based."
--Tom Hanks' first words upon accepting the 1998 Emmy award for Best Miniseries "From the Earth to the Moon"
Eight years in the making, this book is the basis for the HBO series From the Earth to the Moon, produced by Tom Hanks. Incredibly broad in scope, Andy spent eight years interviewing all living Apollo astronauts (only one, Jack Swigert, was deceased at the time).
