'Space has rarely seemed so close, or the world so astonishing' Daily Telegraph
Chris Hadfield spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4,000 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 his success - and survival - is an unconventional philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst - and enjoy every moment of it.
You might never get to pilot a spacecraft like Colonel Hadfield, but his refreshing, hard-won wisdom will teach you how to think like an astronaut, and will change the way you view life on Earth - especially your own.
