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. Warm, inspiring and often funny, Tim charts his surprising road to becoming an astronaut, from a shy and unassuming boy from Chichester who had passion for flight, to a young British Army officer, Apache helicopter pilot, flight instructor and test pilot who served around the world. Tim's extensive eighteen-year career in the Army included the command of a platoon of soldiers Northern Ireland during the Troubles, deployment in Bosnia, and operations in Afghanistan. Tim also relives his selection by the European Space Agency, when he was chosen from over eight thousand candidates, and his gruelling six years of training to be an astronaut, tested physically, psychologically, emotionally and intellectually - from learning Russian in St Petersburg to coping with the darkness and claustrophobia of living for days in caves in Sardinia and under the ocean off the coast of Florida. Full of life lessons for readers of all ages, Limitless is the story of how ordinary can become extraordinary.
