A Slate Staff Pick for Best Books 2013
"A very human glance into a rarified world.... The vacuum of space is unforgiving and brutal. Life on earth isn't easy, either. Mr. Hadfield has genuinely and refreshingly increased our understanding of how to thrive in both places."―The Wall Street Journal
"Hadfield is a genius, a man of science and technology and no first-timer to the universe."―New York Post
"A satisfying behind-the-scenes look at the life of an astronaut.... A page-turning memoir of life as a decorated astronaut."―Kirkus Reviews
"Houston, we have a superstar."―Washington Post
"This memoir is part fascinating view, part Boy Scout manual."―New York Times
"A satisfying behind-the-scenes look at the life of an astronaut.... A page-turning memoir of life as a decorated astronaut."―Kirkus
"Hadfield proves himself to be not only a fierce explorer of the universe, but also a deeply thoughtful explorer of the human condition, capable of articulating those most universal of inquiries in simple yet profound language.... The book itself is absolutely spectacular."―Brain Pickings
"Lessons from his new book, AN ASTRONAUT'S GUIDE TO LIFE, are so inspiring that it's hard to decide which one to tell you about."―USA Today
"Our planet's one-man ambassador to the universe."―Gothamist
"Thoroughly engaging.... In a low-key style, he makes a persuasive case that the oft-derided Space Station is both a marvel of engineering and a triumph for science, and he paints the cartoon heroism of the NASA astronaut corps in a much more realistic, and yet in many ways even more admirable, light."―Corey S. Powell, American Scientist
"Hadfield is a good writer with an engaging style.... From his photos of Earth from space to his videos showing the daily grind of life on a 100-meter wide orbiting tin can, he is all about real life."―Slate
"Riveting, dramatic and intensely engrossing, Hadfield's engaging style as a writer puts you right alongside this almost absurdly compelling gentleman as he climbs the ladder from Canadian fighter pilot through two space shuttle missions and, ultimately, his serving as commander of the ISS."―The Huntington Beach Independent
"Hadfield takes readers on a fascinating and exciting journey while offering insightful-if somewhat unconventional -- wisdom applicable to everyday life here on Earth."―Bookpage
"His book is an autobiography as well as a lesson to the reader on what he's learned throughout his life and travels. And in his particular distillation of 'success,' he is wonderfully counterintuitive in his interpretation of common sense.... A startlingly intimate and warmhearted view of an arcane world, one which he makes plain even to those not educated in fields of scientific inquiry."―Ryan Downer, The California Aggie
"The book is more than just a compilation of intriguing stories and details about life in space....In addition to providing irresistible descriptions of his work, the book--which has been translated into 20 languages--also acts as a self-help guide, with Hadfield offering practical applications to what he has learned over the years."―Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

Principali recensioni dei clienti
His descriptions of life and work on board of the International Space Station - and of the travels to/from the ISS - are particularly vivid and interesting, going way beyond the usual chatting about how astronauts pee in zero-weight conditions. Very wise reflections are offered, in addition, on the very practical and progress-wise outcomes of the activities carried out on the ISS.
I find the stories of such highly-skilled men and women to be incredibly inspiring. Most of the human beings will never be asked to study such high-level technical topics and do terribly risky stuff, yet it is mind-opening to consider how deep and how far we humans can go, if we use our skills and are determined to excel.
Very recommended reading.
P.S. This man recorded "Space Oddity" on the ISS (YouTube it, it's gorgeous) with permission by David Bowie... Aren't you curious to know more about such an incredible person?
As the same title suggests, it is such an useful guide to life on earth written by a "One-Man Mission", probably the only astronaut able to make space cool again, more than anyone else. This is certainly thanks to his great degree of popularity and his ability to make space within everyone's reach !
I really appreciated the interesting anecdotes, which he tells about with those literary skills only well-known authors have.
It is absolutely a book every space enthusiast and collector should have .
Well done COMMANDER Hadfield !!
Fantastico racconto di una vita dedicata ad un sogno fatto quando si era ancora bambini.
Commander Hadfield racconta le sue vicissitudini suddividendo la sua esistenza come un lancio spaziale, ed ogni volta traendo conclusioni e lezioni di vita importanti
