I have always dreamt of being an astronaut and so when I saw that NASA is finally taking applications for new astronaut hopefuls I decided to do some research on what it would take. That is how I came across this audio book. This story of Clayton Anderson was very inspiring and help motivate me to reach for my dreams even if the dream is being an astronaut. I would recommend this book to anyone with a dream or a passion for outer space.

I've read a whole bunch of astronaut autobiographies/memoirs and this one is kind of a disappointment. There are two chapters about pooping, several long and in-depth descriptions of pooping, and way too many inappropriate mentions of the female astronaut's bodies. I'm not offended, I just found it a waste of time and not interesting enough. I'd recommend Mike Massamino's book, Scott Kelly's book, or Scott Parazynski's book, all better. Unless you have a serious reason to read this one, there are better ways to spend your time.
I've listened to a number of great Astro biographies and this one stands out for me. Clay Anderson strikes a great balance between detail, process and the humanity of his amazing journey. Its very touching in parts and laugh out loud in others. I highly recommend this one for any of you space nuts out there as well as anyone who enjoys a good story.
