Review: "The Astronaut Selection Test Book should corner the gift market much in the same way that GCHQ and Bletchley Park Brainteasers have done in the past couple of years." (Guardian); "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. For anyone interested in the space race and the imminent journey to Mars, here's the perfect stocking filler." (Starburst); "It's a brain work-out on steroids, stuffed with authentic selection tests. Entertaining and engaging. innovative, earnest, soulful and exhilarating" (BBC Sky at Night Magazine (Book of the Month));

"Entertaining and engaging, this intelligent book is educational and for the serious-minded. a route to the stars but also a road map for any career application." (5* review and chosen as the book of the month in BBC Sky at Night Magazine); "It's such a good idea. this is a very good thing for Christmas Day" (Graham Norton BBC Radio 2). From the Inside Flap: 'Houston, we have a problem solver.' Drawing on Tim Peake's first-hand experiences, The Astronaut Selection Test Book invites you to attempt the European Space Agency's rigorous application and training programme. Set by a wide range of ESA astronaut trainers and former ESA astronauts, these 100 tests range in difficulty from easy to fiendishly hard. Readers of all ages will be challenged and fascinated by: * Visual perception and logic puzzles * Memory and concentration tests * Mental arithmetic problems * Foreign-language aptitude quizzes * Psychological profiles * Teamwork and leadership tasks * Survival challenges (and much more!) So put on your helmet, strap in, and engage your brain. Are you ready for lift-off?
