Wonderfully narrated by Alan - the story captures his childhood and how it has shaped his adult life, all emotions articulated giving the reader a clear view of the story

The eagle and the dragon are such powerful metaphors that Chris has created and lived out - he has generously shared his story, one complete with themes and lessons that the rest of us, even if we don’t share complete circumstances, are able to learn from. As a strength athlete, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Chris’ passion for lifting - there isn’t much well-written literature, particularly in a biographical fashion, of this nature - any fellow lifters will relate to the appeal to the iron he speaks of.

Best Audible book

Content and narration were just amazing - Chris is genuine, witty yet humourous in this book. What I enjoyed most about this book is that he shares so many life lessons that the rest of us non-astronauts can relate to

Wonderfully written and narrated - could not put it down. Author has weaved different parts of his life without abrupt breaks in the story - bravo

I came across this audiobook by mere accident and I'm glad I did - a story I'm glad Sophia has been so generous to share with the rest of us. It's not one of rainbows and clouds - but yet it is the honest, vivid and down-to-earth storytelling (complete with narration by Sophia herself, her friends, her family, amongst others) that made this such a great audiobook.
