Abstract:

Chris Hadfield spent decades training as an astronaut and logged nearly four thousand hours in space. 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. In An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth, Hadfield draws on his years of training and space exploration to show how to make the impossible possible. The vivid and refreshing insights he offers in his eye-opening, entertaining stories will teach you how to think like an astronaut, and will forever change the way you view life on Earth--especially your own. -- From back cover.
