Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
As the founder and CEO of the first travel agency devoted exclusively to outer space, Eric Anderson possesses the best possible credentials to write this book. In May 2001, billionaire Dennis Tito made history as the first "space tourist" with his $20 million jaunt to the International Space Station, under the auspices of Anderson's Space Adventures. For readers who harbor astronaut aspirations but can't afford the seven- and eight-digit entry fees, this $15.95 instructional paperback will suffice.
