Description
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.

THE POWER OF NEGATIVE THINKING

This book is an eye opener for all those people who always wonder what astronauts do and how they eat and work and sleep in space. It is autobiographical and Chris Hadfield has subtly put every term in simple words so that even a 5th grader understands what space exploration is all about and how astronauts train and become what they are. It may not provide detailed technical information about spacecrafts and orbital mechanics but what it will give you is an eye to another world. A paradise f...

Check Seller Before Purchase

The book is really a good one but please do not buy from the seller "Spectrale". These sellers are horrible. I ordered this book and received " Swami and his Friends" by R.K.Narayan. I had to return the product. Did not expect this callousness from a seller. So please check the seller rating befoe ordering.

An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth’ by Chris Hadfield: Journey of a child to becoming an astronaut

Reader was honoured to meet the author at Emirates Airline Festival of Literature.
When I read a blurb on the back cover of the book, I wanted to read it. Initially from the title, it appears that the book is another addition to the self-help books. However, it is not. The book is divided into three parts.
The first part talks about a journey of a child to becoming an astronaut. The author t...
