Review:

Even casual popular science readers will be hard pressed not to find some fascination within these pages... A compulsive read. -- Big Issue

He writes with the easy tone you'd want to hear from your space pilot.
-- The Times

If a space revolution really is on the way, this book is an engaging way of getting up-to-speed.
-- BBC Focus

[A] fascinating eulogy to space travel. -- Guardian
