Much time has passed, and my heart and head have moved onto other books, so the next few reviews I post will be quick and dirty.
The first Canadian to walk in space, Chris Hadfield, looks back at an impressive career that spans over thirty years. His career achievements include being a top test pilot in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy, an astronaut for both the Canadian Space Agency and NASA, as well as numerous executive positions on Earth and in space!
Chris Hadfield’s warm and funny personality permeates this pretension-free memoir. I enjoyed reading about his career and his experiences as an astronaut, as well as the development of space programs in Canada, the U.S. and Russia.
In keeping with the theme or nugget of advice he wants to highlight in each chapter, Chris jumps back and forth in time quite a bit which can be confusing.
I salute you, Colonel Hadfield for sharing your memories and giving us all a taste of what it’s really like to be an astronaut. I’m not a kid anymore, but I got stars in my eyes reading your book.
