Apollo Moon Missions: The Unsung Heroes

By Billy Watkins | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

A book, I have discovered while writing my first, is not simply a person sitting down and pounding keys until it is finished, though there are countless hours of that. It is a product of many people who share a passion. And I have many to thank.

My agent, Jim Dickerson, promised me this day would come. Jim, you're a man of your word, and a treasured friend. Dr. Heather Staines, senior project editor at Greenwood Publishing Group and a true professional, believed in this idea from the start. Heather, you're the best. I would also like to thank others at Greenwood: Andrew Andrusyszyn, Nicole Azze, Marcia Goldstein, and anyone else whose fingerprints are on this book. Thanks to Jane McGraw at Capital City Press.

I am forever indebted to fellow Mississippian and Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise, who read every chapter for technical accuracy. His knowledge, patience, and attention to detail were never ending. He would even send e-mails reminding me to “get some sleep.” Freddo, thanks for always being there.

Thanks to Margaret Persinger at Kennedy Space Center and Mike Gentry at Johnson Space Center for their help in providing photographs. Also, thanks to Carol Butler at the NASA history office.

I'd like to thank Apollo moon voyagers Jim Lovell, John Young, and Bill Anders, along with flight director Glynn Lunney, for their inspiration and time.

I was fortunate to have many friends who encouraged me throughout the writing of this book and, in ways they may never know, helped make it possible: Larry Conner, Bill Zimmerman, Keith Warren, Amanda
