Now in its fifth printing, "First on the Moon: The Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Experience" sold out within hours of its release. A year later it is still in stock for the bargain price of $16.95! With a foreword by Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, this new telling of the historic first landing on the moon includes previously unpublished lunar photo montages, exclusive interviews with the children of Armstrong and Aldrin, and much more. 

For information on this book or to schedule author interviews, contact Anthony LaSasso at Sterling Publishing, or the author via the contact page.

The New York Times recently featured "First on the Moon" in their "New and Noteworthy" selections. 

Publishers Weekly said, "Packed with archival images and documents, some of them previously unpublished, this book includes a foreword by Buzz Aldrin. It’s one of several new gift-appropriate photo books and covers the mission from start to finish."
