An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield Kindle Book £1.29 @ Amazon.

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.

I've seen a lot of videos on YouTube featuring this guy and the title of his book would sum them up very well.

We will get to a point were going into space is a normal occurrence, I always find astronauts extremely boring people similar to Olympic athletes not the type of people I'd want to read a book from.

This guy is not a normal astronaught. Yes very intelligent and deliberate in action but very ingaging with an interesting perspective.

If your on the fence go for it, a worthy read

Each to their own I guess but not quite sure how you can judge the book without reading it...must admit I'm a huge fan of autobiographies regardless of what "category" the person who has written it falls into and wouldn't exclude reading any autobiography based on whether I am interested in the "profession" of the person writing it or take the view that all people in a certain defined "category" are boring as I am more interested in their life experiences and the insight I can gain into their life and personality...I guess I'm just one of these people who likes to keep an open mind about others :3

Got to say though I found this book fascinating but as I say each to their own ;)

Have to add I've seen Chris Hadfield on stage a few times and he gets things across in simple terms and is always interesting to listen to. TIm Peake was good too, saw him in Portsmouth last year.

Pointless in the fact that I think astronauts and Olympic athletes have similar personalities which i personaly do not find to be the most riveting or exiting from which I would not like to read books written by either, Yep if your opinion does not conform with others then it's pointless

The point being is that your comment had absolutely no bearing on the deal being posted. You have not read the book nor commented on whether this is a good deal. Your subjective statement on what you do or don't like is indeed pointless, hence my comment. Have whatever opinion you want about astronauts or whoever but go post them on an astronaut forum.
