The vacuum of space is unforgiving and brutal. Life on earth isn't easy, either. Hadfield has genuinely and refreshingly increased our understanding of how to thrive in both places. A page-turning memoir of life as a decorated astronaut. The book itself is absolutely spectacular. In a low-key style, he makes a persuasive case that the oft-derided Space Station is both a marvel of engineering and a triumph for science, and he paints the cartoon heroism of the NASA astronaut corps in a much more realistic, and yet in many ways even more admirable, light. Powell, American Scientist "Hadfield is a good writer with an engaging style From his photos of Earth from space to his videos showing the daily grind of life on a meter wide orbiting tin can, he is all about real life. And in his particular distillation of 'success,' he is wonderfully counterintuitive in his interpretation of common sense A startlingly intimate and warmhearted view of an arcane world, one which he makes plain even to those not educated in fields of scientific inquiry. In addition to providing irresistible descriptions of his work, the book--which has been translated into 20 languages--also acts as a self-help guide, with Hadfield offering practical applications to what he has learned over the years.

However, it was absolutely not what I was thinking it would be.

Part motivational, part life lessons, part autobiography, this book is eminently readable and written in easy to read language and easy to digest sentences. Hadfield gets his message across telling the story of his career as an Astronaut - and what he did to get there. I have to say that from this, now I am absolutely a fan of his wife, who must surely be the most supportive woman around!

Humour flows through the book, but he doesn't gloss over how dangerous situations he has been in were, nor does he gloss over the pain of loosing friends in space missions. This book will appeal to a wide range of people - from those who want to know what being an astronaut is like and your eyes will be opened wide - I know mine were to those looking for a creed to live their life by.

There are a heap of photos at the back of the kindle edition of the book instead of scattered through it - so don't assume that the last chapter is the end of the book! I had the opportunity to see Col. Chris Hadfield speak recently and he was so compelling, eloquent, and inspiring that I bought his book during the talk and began reading it right after.

The path to becoming a plus one lies in knowing when and how to be a great zero. This is an elegant example of what makes a team work and will be my new ambition when entering new situations moving forward.

And what a journey it is! Nadia Hashimi. Common Ground. Justin Trudeau. Not My Father's Son.
