Firmly ensconced in the geeky pantheon of computer legends since high school for his pioneering MMORGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games), Richard Garriott can afford to pursue his dreams - even the wildly improbable ones. For instance, following in his astronaut father's footsteps. NASA won't take you because of bad eyes? No problem! Pioneer your own private space industry and buy a $30 million seat on a Russian Soyuz.
Richly funny and invigorating, Man on a Mission tags along with Richard on his quest to be the second Garriott into space. And maybe come back.
