The American people are frustrated with their government-dismayed by a series of high-profile failures (Iraq, Katrina, the financial meltdown) that seems to just keep getting longer. Yet our nation has a proud history of great achievements: victory in World War II, our national highway system, welfare reform, the moon landing. We need more successes like these to reclaim government's legacy of competence. In If We Can Put a Man on the Moon, William Eggers and John O'Leary explain how to do it. The key? Understand-and avoid-the common pitfalls that trip up public-sector leaders during the journey from idea to results. The authors identify pitfalls including: -The Partial Map Trap: Fumbling handoffs throughout project execution -The Tolstoy Syndrome: Seeing only the possibilities you want to see -Design-Free Design: Designing policies for passage through the legislature, not for implementation -The Overconfidence Trap: Creating unrealistic budgets and timelines -The Complacency Trap: Failing to recognize that a program needs change At a time of unprecedented challenges, this book, with its abundant examples and hands-on advice, is the essential guide to making our government work better. A must-read for every public official, this book will be of interest to anyone who cares about the future of democracy.

The basis of the 2014 award-winning feature-length documentary! A revealing and dramatic look at the inside of the American Space Program from one of its pioneers. Eugene Cernan was a unique American who came of age as an astronaut during the most exciting and dangerous decade of spaceflight. His career spanned the entire Gemini and Apollo programs, from being the first person to spacewalk all the way around our world to the moment when he left man's last footprint on the Moon as commander of Apollo 17. Between those two historic events lay more adventures than an ordinary person could imagine as Cernan repeatedly put his life, his family and everything he held dear on the altar of an obsessive desire. Written with New York Times bestselling author Don Davis, The Last Man on the Moon is the astronaut story never before told - about the fear, love and sacrifice demanded of the few men who dared to reach beyond the heavens for the biggest prize of all - the Moon.

In time for the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing, this father-daughter story celebrates a small community's big contribution to one of America's greatest accomplishments. Marthanne and her father sit side by side, looking out over their mill village as the moon glows in the sky. Marthanne hopes that one day, man will walk on the moon, and she knows her father is helping America accomplish this mission: The fabric he weaves forms one layer in the astronauts' spacesuits. Papa insists he's only making a living, but Marthanne knows his work is part of history, and she's proud. She tries to be patient, but she can't stop imagining the moon mission: the astronauts tumbling through space, the fabric her papa made traveling all the way up into the sky. When the astronauts blast off and Neil Armstrong finally takes his first steps on the moon, Marthanne watches in wonder. She knows her papa put a man on the moon.

On 20 July 1969, man first set his tentative foot on the Moon. Ever since that first "giant leap" there have been a small group of people who have cast doubts on that great achievement. Over the years, as more and more of the "so-called" anomalies have been discovered the band of sceptics has steadily increased, and the believers have consequently become more vehement in their defence of NASA. Even so, recent surveys show that at least eighty percent of the adult population still believe that it really happened the way that NASA beamed it to televisions around the world. There are many books which celebrate this technological achievement, and a few, mostly, self-published books that claim it was a very convincing hoax. So what is the truth? All of these existing books are partisan, supporting either the truth ideology, or the falsehoods.This book examines the evidence for and against this being a true record of the known facts, or a complete deception by NASA, and perhaps the US Government, or some clandestine elements of Government. The value of this book to the interested reader is that for the first time it brings together all the evidence in an impartial way. The range of evidence is vast and it would take considerable time, and effort, to search it out. The author, Trevor Weaver, just spent the past two years of his life doing just that."Man On The Moon: Fact or Fiction?" is a book which is unremittingly non-partisan, the author expresses no personal opinion on the truth of the matter. Instead he presents the detailed evidence, for and against, so that the reader can form their own conclusions. There is a vast array of evidence from both sides, scattered in many places, and often difficult, and time consuming to search out. Added to this some of the evidence presented by both sides is flawed, and does not stand the scrutiny of scientific fact. The author guides the reader, step by step, through this morass of science, and false belief. His painstaking research provides remarkably detailed, and startling evidence that will leave you curious about what has been held as fact for 50 years, and make you question if this was mankind's greatest achievement, or its biggest lie. The book is supported by a website that holds all of the documents, photographic and video evidence. In total there are almost 900 hours of video evidence, and over 2.000 pages of reference documentation.
