An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth
- By: Chris Hadfield
- Narrated by: Chris Hadfield
- Length: 8 hrs and 45 mins
An inspirational memoir of space exploration and hard-won wisdom, from an astronaut who has spent a lifetime making the impossible a reality. 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.
A spectacular and humble insight into one continuous lifetime of applied dedication

A great achievement. No organized insights
After finishing 5 chapters, I finally decided to give up on it. I can't just listen to his personal achievements and challenges that are very irrelevant to me. I respect his dedication as an astronaut or as a narrator, but definitely not as an author. his personal life details could have been elaborates after by abstract conclusions that could be relevant to me. I appreciate his work for humanity and for understanding earth and space though.
