Journey to Space details his personal account of the rollercoaster emotions of excitement and tribulations throughout his experience in the Angkasawan programme-starting from when he made his application, the arduous training and medical examinations that followed and when he was selected to undergo a one-year training stint in Star City, Russia, and finally being chosen as the prime crew member on the Soyuz 11. Journey to Space is a memoir that will be an inspiring read to others who may wish to tread in the footsteps of Sheikh Muszaphar and shows that with enough determination, faith and belief in yourself, no dream is impossible.
