My Best Book of February

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

I haven't got a whole lot of reading done in February, being very busy at work and getting ready for a birding trip.  But of the books I did get to, this one is at the top of the heap. 

 

Chris Hadfield seems like a guy it would be fun to have coffee with.  He appears to have written the book himself and I can hear his voice when I read the pages. 

 

For those of you who haven't seen it yet, check out his music video from the space station, his cover of David Bowie's Space Oddity.
