Colonel Chris Hadfield has 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, been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior
of an orbiting spacecraft, and become a YouTube sensation with his
performance of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity' in space. The secret to Chris
Hadfield's success - and survival - is an unconventional philosophy he
learned at NASA: prepare for the worst - and enjoy every moment of it.In
his book, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth, 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 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 Colonel Hadfield. But his vivid and refreshing insights in this book
will teach you how to think like an astronaut, and will change, completely,
the way you view life on Earth - especially your own.
