Sex on the Moon by Ben Mezrich

Sex on the Moon by Ben Mezrich is a captivating story that reads more like a novel than non-fiction. The tempo was great and the story felt enthralling, even though the reader knew how it was going to end. The story of how three college interns manage to pull off a theft of an incredible enormity. The three boys/men managed to not only earn the trust of some of the brightest minds in the country but also steal moon rocks from the Johnson Space Center and NASA. The account reads much like a movie which makes sense since the author also wrote The Accidental Billionaires which made it to the big screen under the name The Social Network. Thad Roberts has a brilliant mind who takes a true story and creates a work of genius.
