I'm a Chris Hadfield fan - I will admit that first up. I bought this because of that initially. However, it was absolutely not what I was thinking it would be.
Part motivational, part life lessons, part autobiography, this book is eminently readable and written in easy to read language and easy to digest sentences. Hadfield gets his message across telling the story of his career as an Astronaut - and what he did to get there. I have to say that from this, now I am absolutely a fan of his wife, who must surely be the most supportive woman around!

And what a journey it is! The genre is a familiar one, the combination of an intimate, personal voyage with a grand story of human exploration. In May , Hadfield returned to Earth after serving as Commander of the International Space Station, where he and his crew lived for six months his third trip.
