Read this book, and you will come away with a new sense of wonder and appreciation for our moon. The facts and mysteries that are presented throughout the first 6 chapters are startling and reveal that our moon is far more than just a lovely object in the night sky. Like the sun, the moon has been instrumental in not only creating life on earth, but also in sustaining it. If our moon were to suddenly disappear, for example, the earth’s axis tilt, its weather and spin would be altered in such a way that most life would be destroyed. The book then takes a wildly speculative turn when the authors present three hypotheses as to who or what created the moon. Unfortunately, the authors end by trying to convince us of their third explanation, which I find preposterous and totally unbelievable, somewhat devaluating the facts and mysteries presented in the first half of the book.
