If you've ever ready any of Roach's other books you will be familiar with the style of this book. She often takes an offbeat subject such as the science of death or sex and then provides a narrative about it that is interesting, informative, and humorous. In this particular book she focuses on space travel. She interviews both current and past astronauts as well as investigates the history of space missions, the training that goes into them, and the bodily experiences that occur due to space travel. She also personally takes part in some of the training that astronauts go through. If you have enjoyed Roach's other books you'll also enjoy this one.
