“Moon Hoax: Debunked!” is also an opportunity to rediscover and celebrate one of mankind's greatest journeys of exploration. It shows how the Apollo missions don't need conspiracy theories to be a fascinating adventure. For example, did you know how close to failure each flight actually came? Did you know that pictures of Playmates were smuggled to the Moon to prank the astronauts? Or that there was a secret Soviet plan to land a Russian on the Moon before the US?
The book includes a quick primer on the historical background of the Moon race and on the hardware of an Apollo flight to the Moon, as well as a detailed explanation of the best evidence of the Moon landings and a chapter covering the origins and popularity of the various hoax theories. There's also a guide to debating a Moon hoax believer and an exploration of the various UFO claims linked to the Moon landings.
