Reviews

Hilarious.
This is the kind of smart, smirky stuff that Roach does so well.--Geoff Nicholson
A delightful, illuminating grab bag of space-flight curiosities.
Cool answers to questions about the void you didn't even know you had.
An utterly fascinating account, made all the more entertaining by the author's ever-amused tone.
An impish and adventurous writer with a gleefully inquisitive mind and stand-up comic's timing.
The author's writing comes across as reportorial, but with a clear sense of humor; even the footnotes are used to both informational and comedic effect.--Time Out New York
