Description

  • an American astronaut's self-help guide
  • Colonel Chris Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4000 hours in space. During this
    time he has broken into a Space Station with a Swiss army knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, and
    been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft. The secret to Col. Hadfield's
    success-and survival-is an unconventional philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst-and enjoy every moment of
    it.

    In An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth, Col. Hadfield takes readers deep into his years of training and space
    exploration to show how to make the impossible possible. Through eye-opening, entertaining stories filled with the
    adrenaline of launch, the mesmerizing wonder of spacewalks, and the measured, calm responses mandated by crises, he
    explains how conventional wisdom can get in the way of achievement-and happiness. His own extraordinary education in
    space has taught him some counterintuitive lessons: don't visualize success, do care what others think, and always sweat
    the small stuff.

    You might never be able to build a robot, pilot a spacecraft, make a music video or perform basic surgery in zero
    gravity like Col. Hadfield. But his vivid and refreshing insights will teach you how to think like an astronaut, and
    will change, completely, the way you view life on Earth-especially your own.
