    You might have noticed that when I read nonfiction, I read some pretty crazy topics all over the place. This time! We're delving into space. REAL SPACE. Not Your Sci-fi Space Lite ?. And this is precisely the reason why you have to read real space memoirs, especially if you're a s...

    Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery is a memoir written by Scott Kelly. A former NASA astronaut, Scott Kelly is best known for spending nearly a year on the International Space Station (ISS) and (as of October 2015) for spending more time in space than any other America...

    The worst argument I ever had with my dad when I was growing up was over astronauts. We were at the dinner table and I had remarked that astronauts had to be superior and my dad argued that they had to be 'normal'. Dad thought that normal meant a human body that functioned as it was su...

    All the stars for this one, fittingly. Best read of the year, and more. I want to write a love song to this one but am not up to it. I do keep wondering if this was written completely by Kelly or with a ghost writer. It doesn?t matter to me, I just wonder how to place my abun...

    I received a free copy of this e-book from the publisher (via NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review. I?m an absolute sucker for astronaut biographies, so I had to read this. There haven?t been a ton of books written by astronauts who have flown on the ISS. Scott Kelly is a S...

    Als groot fan van verhalen die zich afspelen in de ruimte, vond ik het zeer interessant het verhaal van astronaut Scott Kelly te lezen. Afwisselend vertelt hij over zijn jaar in de ruimte en de weg om zijn droom astronaut te worden te verwezenlijken. Het is een heel persoonlijk verhaal...

    An excellent slice-of-life view aboard the International Space Station - along with smoothly interwoven stories through Scott Kelly's life to how he got to the opportunity to spend a year in space. I can't wait to see if an audiobook version comes out, if it does and Scott Kelly reads ...

    I very much enjoyed the details of life on the space station, and I liked the discussion of some of the differences between NASA and Roscosmos. I was a little put off, however, by the negative tone of the book. Even the title must rankle with other astronauts who would give anything...

    Scott Kelly has done a very good job of relating his experiences as an astronaut in a way that someone without technical knowledge can understand. Some of his stories made me laugh out loud. It did kind of drag for me near the end, but his book sparked my interest in the ISS, NASA, and...

    Almost every review of this book, I'll bet, will begin something like this: "When I was a kid, outer space was fascinating...I dreamed of being an astronaut." I wholeheartedly agree with the first part; it was true of me then - back in the '50s when the National Aeronautics and Space A...
