Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Endurance by Scott Kelly.

From the NASA astronaut who spent a record-breaking year aboard the International Space Station - what it's like out there and what it's like now, back here. Enter Scott Kelly's fascinating world and dare to think of your own a little differently.

The veteran of four space flights and the American record holder for most consecutive days spent in space, Scott Kelly has experienced things very few of us ever have and very few of us ever will.

Kelly's humanity, compassion, humour and passion shine as he describes navigating the extreme challenge of long-term spaceflight, both existential and banal. He touches on what's happened to his body, the sadness of being isolated from everyone he loves, the pressures of constant close cohabitation, the catastrophic risks of colliding with space junk and the still more haunting threat of being absent should tragedy strike at home.

From a natural storyteller, Endurance is one of the finest examples of the triumph of the human imagination, the strength of the human will and the boundless wonder of the galaxy.

Scott tells space from human perspective

My first read/listen of space from an astronaut, narrated by the man himself.
Enthralling and captivating, a great insight into a man, a dream and goal and overcoming all obstacles to reach that goal.
The Right Stuff is now in shopping a shopping bag, waiting for my ride home while drinking a good IPA.
Thank you to Scott for sharing his journey.

A remarkable story of the right stuff

Scott recounts a fascinating story of his life in the navy and as a NASA astronaut. It’s a tale that makes light of the amount of hard work he must have undertaken to achieve what he has. He comes across as very capable and very driven. I suspect he hasn’t been easy to live with. However what he has achieved is remarkable. It’s a great account and whilst there is a huge amount that Scott is undoubtedly proud of, you can’t but feel he always wanted more, perhaps a mars voyage or return to the moon. The book has given me a far better understanding of what is required of a modern astronaut, for the risks they take I am truly grateful.

The next best thing to being an astronaut

Such a fascinating insight into the life of an astronaut. Amazing tales of what we take for granted on Earth and what you miss when in space.
