This review is from: An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth (Hardcover)
Chris Hadfield wanted to be astronaut since he was child, and he fulfilled that ambition in full - going into space three times culminating in his recent command of the International Space Station.
In this very enjoyable book he talks of the hard work and focus, and the pleasures of living in the moment, and of close team work that allowed him to achieve his goals. Most of the book, though, recounts his experiences as an astronaut, the training, the ground work, the flights on the space shuttle, and what it was like to launch, to be on the space staion, and to return to earth.
Engrossing, informative and very enjoyable.
