"Not simply about one mission, [Genesis] is also the history of America's quest for the moon... Zimmerman has done a masterful job of tying disparate events together into a solid account of one of America's greatest human triumphs." --San Antonio Express-News
"With great intelligence and an eye for enjoyable reading, Zimmerman highlights a period in American history when everyday heroes still existed and we had not lost our capacity to be awed by scientific achievement."-- Publishers Weekly, 9/28/98
"Zimmerman succeeds in capturing the dramatic events surrounding man's first flight to the moon. . . . Through Genesis all of us can recapture the beginnings of the space program." -- Houston Chronicle
"Well-told . . . Provide[s] a unique perspective . . . Zimmerman's work is the first to cover this flight alone and to stress its monumental significance as the most important Apollo mission." -- Library Journal
"A detailed, compelling account of the first manned mission to orbit the moon." -- Spaceviews
"Zimmerman keeps in check this potentially hyperbolic drama, giving it a nice, steady rhythm." -- Kirkus Reviews
And from the astronauts:
"Genesis captures the essence of the space race and the Apollo program." -- Frank Borman (commander, Apollo 8)
"The flight of Apollo 8 brought a shining ending to a year of turmoil. Zimmerman tells the reality of that story with vigor." -- Jim Lovell (Apollo 8 astronaut and commander of Apollo 13)
"Gensis: The Story of Apollo 8 successfully weaves together the flight to the moon with the political backdrop of that very troubled decade of the sixties." -- Bill Anders (Apollo 8 astronaut)
