Now in paperback and updated with a new essay on his celebrated trip to Antarctica comes this best-selling inspirational memoir from beloved astronaut Buzz Aldrin.
Buzz Aldrin is an American hero. Always larger than life, he is the best known surviving member of a generation of astronauts who in just a few years became both the first men in space and first men on the moon. In this inspiring book, Aldrin pauses to reflect and share what he has learned about life from the vantage point of both outer space and time. (Still a nonstop traveler and impassioned advocate for space exploration, he turned 87 in 2017.) Consisting of nine principles to live by, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories, this thought-provoking book is a beautiful memento of a life well lived--and a new opportunity for Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who recognize his unique place in human history.
