"How Apollo Flew to the Moon" (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Apollo-Springer-Praxis-Books-Explor...) is pretty exhaustive on the technical details.
You'll want to read this book which goes into extreme technical detail about how the Apollo mission worked: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Apollo-Springer-Praxis-Books-Explor...

I can unreservedly recommend the book "How Apollo Flew to the Moon":
⬐ echobaseAgreed. I'm currently half-way through the latest edition. It is extremely interesting, well-written, thoughtful, and intelligent. What a fascinating era that was.⬐ andyjohnson0A great book. Despite the cheesy-looking cover there is a lot of technical detail in this book.
It is also worth noting that there is now a second edition containing additional material. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Apollo-Springer-Praxis-Books-Explora...
