Astronaut, Tim Peake, shares a detailed view in to his journey to becoming the world renowned astronaut he is today.

Full of life lessons for readers of all ages, Limitless is the story of how ordinary can become extraordinary.

In fascinating and personal detail, and drawing on exclusive diaries and audio recordings from his mission, astronaut Tim Peake takes readers closer than ever before to experience what life in space is really like: the sights, the smells, the fear, the sacrifice, the exhilaration and the deep and abiding wonder of the view.

Full Product Description

'What surprised me was how entirely serene I felt. I was weightless, no forces exerting themselves on my body. To my left was the Space Station. Below me, gradually going into shadow, was the Earth. And over my right shoulder was the universe.'

Warm, inspiring and often funny, Tim also charts his surprising road to becoming an astronaut, from a shy and unassuming boy from Chichester who had a passion for flight, to a young British Army officer, Apache helicopter pilot, flight instructor and test pilot who served around the world.

An extensive eighteen-year career in the Army included the command of a platoon of soldiers in Northern Ireland during the Troubles, deployment in Bosnia, and operations in Afghanistan.

A very inspiring book

I learnt a lot about the qualities and life experience needed to become an astronaut. To be selected for astronaut training from 8000 applicants is an incredible achievement and, having read what Tim Peake had experienced in life before his selection, it's clear that the average person would have no chance. Nevertheless, it's also apparent what can be achieved with determination, initiative and a desire to succeed. The book is well written and very easy and interesting to read. I would definitely recommend it.

Regarding the Science Museum shop - the service was brilliant as usual and the book was delivered to my home within 3-4 days of ordering it.
