This was a disappointing book. I have enjoyed previous books by this author because they were full of his humor and insights. This one seems to be a catharsis about his family and is depressingly tiresome. I will never buy another.

I was eager to listen to this book since I truly enjoyed two others by astronauts but it was disappointing. The reader did a great job. The story fell short of conveying this writers experience of space. It seemed to just be about him and not much of a “lens” into what the experience was except how special this author thinks he is. More authenticity would have been appreciated.

Buy the book - the Audible version is a poor substitute. The paper version has 16 Chapters. This is a rip-off to be charged full credit and receive only two chapters. Very disappointing.

Inspiring, entertaining, engaging and very down to earth. It will speak to anyone who listens closely enough to hear the messages.

This is one of the most powerful and well written books I have read. It takes the reader on a journey of discovery as a sharp young woman tries to avoid taking on a case that will interfere with her prestigious law practice, however, the client - who is a survived of Nazi brutality helps her find her voice and passion for life. In the course of this book the reader will learn first hand about the courage, suffering and eventual triumph of the human spirit over evil. I was unable to stop listening once I started.

Dull, boring and needlessly vulgar. I was really looking forward to something clever and entertaining - but I very disappointed.

Started out promising and quickly became dull and plodding. What a disappointment.

The best audio book I've ever listened to. Of course - I am a "Trekie" but I've listened to this 3 times and still am not tired of it. The narrator has a highly entertaining style and the content really is interesting if you have been immersed in any of the Star Trek genre of shows. Highly entertaining, smart and clever.
