An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth - Chris Hadfield

Chris Hadfield's book "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth" was an amazing read that I couldn't put down.

 

Surprisingly, there were a lot of things that I learned through reading Hadfield's book. There were a lot of motivational moments throughout and plenty of opportunities to reflect on my own life. I didn't realize how many lessons I could learn from an astronaut. The book even included a photo insert with pictures of Hadfield growing up, his career milestones, and the view from the International Space Station. (All of which were breathtaking.)

I've been nonstop telling my friends about my latest read. Hopefully you'll like it just as much as I do!
