“Every generation of astronauts needs a storyteller – a person with wit, humor, and passion who has lived out collective dreams of space exploration and returned to tell us all about it. Mike Massimino is that person. He’s that astronaut. And this is his story.”  

Neil deGrasse Tyson

“Mike Massimino writes about space with an astronaut’s eye and an engineers precision.  You’ll be impressed with his journey and his perspective on where a well-developed space program can take us in the future.”  

Senator John Glenn

“A smooth combination of personal history and immersive storytelling…A vivid, engrossing, and enthusiastically written memoir of aeronautic ambition.”
