AUTHOR

David Chudwin MD decided to go into medicine instead of journalism, but his Apollo 11 experiences led to a lifelong interest in space exploration. Chudwin has written about Apollo 11 in a variety of media outlets and has spoken about Apollo 11 at schools and at space meetings, including Spacefest. Chudwin was the only teenager to be granted a press pass for the 1969 moon landing.


REVIEWS

While in the astronaut training ‘pipeline’ for an Apollo mission, I served as CAPCOM and Lunar Module Checkoutastronaut on Support Crews for Apollos 9, 10, and 13. In fact, I was the CAPCOM who answered that fateful call from Apollo 13, ‘Houston, we’ve had a problem!’ Follow the riveting stories from those exciting and historic days of the Apollo program in this book by Dr David Chudwin, my fellow graduate from the University of Michigan.

Jack Lousma, Astronaut, Apollo 13 CAPCOM, Skylab 2 Pilot and STS-3 Commander

Seeing Apollo 11’s launch through the memories of a wide-eyed teenage outsider is remarkable: a homegrown reminiscence from someone fortunate to be a witness to humankind’s greatest engineering triumph.

Francis French, Space historian and Director of Education, San Diego Air and Space Museum

The Ethical Business Book

The burgeoning array of literature on ethical behaviour tends to focus on what’s happening at the extremes – either owner managers of start-ups built around a strong moral crusade, or large corporations undergoing change due to the personal epiphany of a forward-thinking CEO. This book, however, is directed at the middle ground – individuals who want their companies to adopt more ethical and sustainable practices, but don’t know where to start. The 50 ideas and techniques in this book provide direction to help society and the planet, while preserving the bottom line.
