Reviews

This tongue-in-cheek (but scientifically sound) book is the ultimate guide for any budding space tourist, packed full of advice on where to go, what to pack, and what to do while you're there -- James Lloyd * BBC Focus Magazine *
Lavishly illustrated... What really brings this book alive are the stunning illustrations, all done in an art-deco style, like the travel posters of yesteryear... Superb -- Mark Garlick * BBC Sky at Night Magazine *
If you've ever wondered what a holiday in space might be like, here is your answer. It combines light humour with rigorous science and is just the thing to captivate a bright child or anyone, in fact, who aspires to be the next Tim Peake -- Rupert Hawksley * Daily Telegraph *
