THE ASTRONAUT SELECTION TEST BOOK
*The* puzzle book of 2018, as featured in the Times, Daily Telegraph, BBC Radio 4, BBC Breakfast, and a Guardian Book of the Year pick.
Have YOU got what it takes to be an astronaut?
This book will help readers of all ages find out. Featuring 100 real astronaut tests and exercises from the European Space Agency’s rigorous selection process, ranging from easy to fiendishly hard, The Astronaut Selection Test Book goes where no puzzle book has gone before.
Including puzzles and tests on:
· visual perception and logic
· mental arithmetic and concentration
· psychological readiness
· teamwork and leadership
· survival, physical and medical skills
· foreign languages (every astronaut has to know Russian)
I was lucky enough to be asked by Tim to help him write this book. Working with him was a career highlight and it was fascinating to get a behind-the-scenes look at the way astronauts are selected and trained.

“Engrossing… a brain buster of a book… You’ll learn plenty about space and what it takes to be an astronaut, but you’ll also sharpen up your broader knowledge”
