From the reviews:

"Brian Harvey, who has written a number of books on aspects of Soviet/Russian space programmes, has produced an excellent work in this latest volume. ... A good feature of this book are the little summaries at the end of each chapter or major section, as well as the various statistical tables. There are also lots of illustrations. ... Anyone with an interest in the history of Soviet/Russian space activities would find ... illuminating and rewarding." (Liftoff, Issue 239, 2007)

"Harvey concisely covers the Soviet space program from the mid-1950s through the mid-1970s. ... The book is very readable and a good general survey of the history of the Soviet lunar program ... . This would be a good first book for learning about the Soviet lunar program. It has a fairly extensive bibliography for those who wish to delve deeper into this area. Summing Up: Recommended. General readers; lower-division undergraduates." (D. B. Mason, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (2), 2007)
