Chris Hadfield


“An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth” is a memoir by retired astronaut Chris Hadfield. After spending nearly 4,000 hours in space across three spaceflights, Hadfield shares captivating stories and lessons learned from his experiences as an astronaut. He reveals the unconventional philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst and enjoy every moment of it. Hadfield takes readers on a journey through his training and space exploration, offering eye-opening and 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, offering counter-intuitive lessons such as not visualizing success, caring about what others think, and sweating the small stuff. Hadfield’s vivid and refreshing insights in this book will teach readers how to think like an astronaut and change the way they view life on Earth. This edition contains a new afterword.
