Hadfield takes listeners deep into his years of training and space exploration to show how to make the impossible possible.

Listening to the author really made this audiobook a gem. It feels like he's comfortably sharing his life with you, self-deprecating guffaws and all. As if the story itself wasn't inspiring enough! I highly recommend this especially if you are looking for a self-help or leadership book that doesn't read like a to do list.

Fantastic audiobook, but could you really expect something else from the man who so ably embodies unassuming excellence? Col. Hadfield is an inspirational figure and a great Canadian, and I for one feel privileged to have heard him speak at White Oaks Secondary School back in his pre-YouTube sensation days.

I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed this super interesting book. Col. Hadfield is an impressively accomplished man as well as being a very likeable sort of guy. He narrates this audio production himself and does a great job of it. He explains his journey to becoming an astronaut as well as his experiences in flight and at the International Space Station. I would recommend this for sure.

A great guide, read by the author making it all the more immediate and wonderful. He shares his experiences in such a way as to teach, for sure, but also entertain along the way. You'll start sweating the small stuff in no time. My ten year old - on a recent long trip - kept feeding me the next CD to keep the story going, that tells you how fun this is. Wow-ly recommended.
