Has anyone read this book, "Apollo 14: Mutiny," by David A. Noever?
The first mission to the Moon after the disastrous events of Apollo 13. The return to spaceflight for the first American in space. A career-ending bout with a pilot's worst nightmare, uncontrollable dizzy spells. An unsanctioned science experiment to test if human extrasensory perception could reach to the Moon and back. An often rehearsed space docking that succeeded every time except when it mattered the most. When the astronauts blinked their eyes, floating lights accompanied them as silent escorts. An often rehearsed lunar landing seemed impossible if radar could not tell them what craters and boulders they were blind to below them. A failure was inconceivable if Apollo was ever to return to the Moon. And when failure came, the answer was mutiny.

Any opinions? Comments?

There are a lot of conversations included in the book that I would be very interested to know if they are factual or artistic license, for example a conversation between Slayton and Shepard in the gents toilets where Roosa was supposedly in a cubicle and able to overhear what was being said. Just wondering how the author had access to so many detailed conversations. Are they on record somewhere?
