Inhaltsangabe zu „An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth“ von Chris Hadfield

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.

Schönes Buch das sich gut und flüssig lesen lässt. Was ich sehr gerne mag ist das der Autor nicht mit Weiheiten und verbesserungsvorschlägen

    Schönes Buch das sich gut und flüssig lesen lässt. Was ich sehr gerne mag ist das der Autor nicht mit Weisheiten und Verbesserungsvorschlägen um sich wirft. Es liest sich mehr wie eine Autobiografie und vermittelt einen tollen Einblick in die Welt der Raumfahrt und Astronauten (mit der ich mich vorher nur am Rande beschäftigt habe). Bin ohne große Erwartungen an das Buch rangegangen und wurde sehr positiv überrascht.
