An Astronaut's Guide to Life on EarthBook - 2013
Chris 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 space walks and the measured, calm responses mandated by crises, he explains how conventional wisdom can get in the way of real 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 (because if you don't, you die). This is Hadfield's story of how he became an astronaut (and why he had to work twice as hard to get a chance because he was Canadian).
