Waterstones Says

In Limitless, the nation’s favourite astronaut, Tim Peake, shares his inspiring life story from military duty in Northern Ireland and Afghanistan to the European Space Agency and the infinite cosmos.

Signed Bookplate Edition. A standard edition is available here.

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

Limitless is a book about the power of following our dreams - however unlikely they may seem - and of striving to reach our potential, even when we might not believe in it ourselves.

Limitless also charts Peake's 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. Peake's 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 flying multiple high-risk sorties as a test pilot, including operations in Afghanistan.

After he was selected by the European Space agency from over 8000 candidates, Peake undertook six years of training to be an astronaut, tested physically, psychologically, emotionally and intellectually - from learning Russian language in St. Petersburg to coping with the darkness and claustrophobia of living for days in caves in Sardinia and under the ocean off the United States.

“Amazing insight into his life”

I loved this book. Tim is such a good writer as he writes honestly and with a lot of humour (quite a bit at his own expense) to tell the reader what life is like in the army and through astronaut selection. Nothing... More
