Recensione cliente

il 19 marzo 2017
The inspiring professional and personal life of a man who has achieved what is - probably - the most exclusive success: being an astronaut and walk in space. Chris Hadfield narrates the different steps in his career, and the professional and human challenges he had to face in order to climb to the stars. A very determined yet humble man, he makes no attempt to deny how hard and demanding it all was, but also how good he turned out to be in all that was asked to him, thanks to his talent - of course - but mostly to his dedication. There is not a hint of arrogance in this, however it is undoubtable that, to do what Hadfield has done, you can't be an ordinary person.
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?
