11Title:  The book of the moon   
 Creator:  Stroud, Rick. 
 Publication:  Walker & Co, New York, 2009. 
 Notes:  Originally published: London : Doubleday, 2009. On July 20, 1969, in one of the iconic moments of the twentieth century, Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon, and the distant object that had fascinated mankind for millennia suddenly got much closer. Rick Stroud has been obsessed with the moon since childhood, and here provides the culmination of that passion--an original and absorbing account of all things lunar, a book that celebrates the physics that created the moon and the technology that took us there as much as its magic and mystery. Opening with the debatable story of how the moon was formed (scientists still don't agree on this), Stroud then turns to the stories of mankind's fascination with Earth's satellite, delving into the mythology and astrology that have inspired civilizations and cultures the world over, alongside the scientific and medicinal advances that have come from our lunar connection.--From publisher description. Includes bibliographical references and index. Discography: P. 348-351. Filmography: P. 347-348. 
 Extent:  368 p., [16] p. of plates : ill. (some col.), maps (some col.) ; 25 cm.
