Un astronauta sulla Terra 29.10.13

An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth è il nuovo libro dell'astronauta canadese Chris Hadfield sui suoi anni di formazione e di esplorazione dello spazio, accompagnato da una serie di spiritosi video promo sui problemi psicologici dovuti al ritorno alla vita di tutti i giorni sulla Terra.

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 Col. Hadfield. But his vivid and refreshing insights will teach you how to think like an astronaut, and will change, completely, the way you view life on Earth-especially your own.
