      This book was a wonderful Christmas gift from my partner last year. I guess me raving on about how wonderful An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth for weeks on end sent her a subtle hint. And while I have been flipping through this wonderful book for a few months now, I have finally managed to sit down and read the text and walk through it from beginning to end. For those who do not know who Commander Chris Hadfield I feel a mixture of pity and resignation that you are a lost cause. You're proba [...]

      You Are Here is a gorgeous book, a collection of photographs taken by Chris Hadfield during his time on the ISS. He shows us Earth in all its variety: the densely inhabited cities lighting up the night, the marks we've left on the landscape, and then also the stretches of empty desert, the glorious geologic features of mountains and volcanoes, the places where meteorites have impacted. It's much better than looking at the photos on a computer, as he says in the introduction: it seems so much sha [...]

      Hadfield has been fortunate enough to live on the International Space Station. While he was there he became fascinated with his planet and our planet below. Using his own camera, he began to take pictures of the things he saw from space. They are the beautiful parts, the bizarre landscapes, and the some of more wonderful natural and man made places. He first shared photos these on Twitter, and built a huge following of fans.In this book he brings us his favourite pictures and places that he took [...]

      Breathtaking images organized by continent. This is entirely reminiscent of Col. Hadfield's posts on Social Media during Expeditions 34 and 35 aboard the ISS. Clearly the captions accompanying the photos are Col. Hadfield's voice. My only complainte size. Whilst the size makes this book accessible to more people (by keeping costs down), which I am sure was the motivation behind the size, these stunning photos also deserve to be formatted in a manner that does them justice. My fingers are still c [...]

      Amazing, perspective altering photos of the Earth from the International Space Station, as taken by Commander Chris Hadfield during his nearly 3000 orbits of the planet. Apparently he took nearly 45,000 photos turning his time aboard the ISS - I can't imagine how much work it was to sort them and identify the locations

      geography/space porn! loved it.

    • Julie says:

      I've made a new shelf called "coffeetable books" -- though I'm unlikely to read very many of those from cover-to-cover, and this one doesn't entirely count as a coffeetable book anyway, because Chris Hadfield explicitly wanted it designed to be small enough & light enough for you to carry it around and read it comfortably, rather than an inaccessible tome that just sits on the table untouched. And that worked out great! It's exactly the right size to read happily without straining your poor [...]

      I'll be honest, I don't usually read the text in these art- or photography-based books but with this one I was really interested in what Commander Hadfield had to say. Hadfield does make some good observations about the images but I found that I would have liked more text than there was. For each photograph there was only a small snippet explaining what it was and I would have liked more detail. Having said that, the photographs were unique and gave a unique view of the world. This is definitely [...]

      I love the way author presented his works. So grateful to have such works. Every images taught me recollect my thoughts and experience different things; How feeble we actually are; How drastically we're changing the geography of our beautiful home; And in some places, how blessed we're to get such views to look at our Pale Blue dot. Gave me a lot of historical information as well like 28000 year old civilisations in Australia. Not too much technical though and that's why I feel like everyone can [...]

      Când sunt în avion, îmi place să stau la geam și nu mă plictisesc niciodată de spectacolul de dedesubt: orașele luminate noaptea, parcelele cu lanuri colorate, formele orașelor, munții, cu 2-3 km mai aproape decât restul decorului, zborul ocazional peste vreun vulcan, soarele reflectat în parbrizul vreunei mașini cât un purice pe vreun drum, singura dovadă că jos există un furnicar de viață. Motiv pentru care mi-a plăcut teribil albumul foto al colonelului Chris Hadfield, “ [...]

    • Jo-anne says:

      I loved the photos of known and unknown locations shown from the unique perspective of space. Also really enjoyed Hadfield's whimsical side with his inclusion of pareidolia, the ability to see shapes in clouds and landforms. The book provides great insight into the impact of natural phenomena and the consequences of human settlement.There are striking photos of Australia that have resulted in me buying several copies to leave as gifts to old and new friends we encounter on an upcoming trip to do [...]

      Best gift ever! Inspirational for any artist, to be appreciated with equal zeal by young and old and everybody can learn from it in a extremely fun and particularly memorable way. Anybody from any nationality will find something to identify with. I have read mine four times now and I seem to find something new and beautiful to marvel over every single time. A book that will never ever become outdated or irrelevant. Funny, thought provoking and inspirationla. Get the detailed bigger picture?

    • Martyn says:

      Endlessly fascinating and beautiful. It left me with a greater impression of the Earth as an exotic, living, shifting organism than I had previously had. When seen from these distances geographic features become blood vessels and mountain ranges skin; it's not really a leap to think about the way that biological and geographical systems resemble each other in form - it's just necessary to have photos of this scale in hand to notice the fractal potentialities.

    • Alexandria says:

      AMAZING! I definitely finished this in less than 92 minutes, and loved every second of it. It made me think about how small we all are in the grand scheme of things. It was thought provoking, and made me see the world in a whole new way. Literally. I was surprised by the detail and vivid colours he was able to capture from his position. Definitely going to make everyone I know, at least flip through and look at the photos.

    • Toni Osborne says:

      This book is a virtual creation of earth from space. Mr. Hadfield shares with us along with his thoughts a selection of amazing and unforgettable photographs taken during his five months stay on the International Space Station. This planetary tour opens a window to the magnificence of the landscapes and effects humans had shaping our world. Awesome what else can I say

      Stunning.

      A gorgeous book, with delightful photos and entertaining citations for the curious ones. Best Christmas gift!

    • Kara says:

      WOW! Our planet is gorgeous!

    • Alex Folkins says:

      This book was beautiful. It captured Earths beauty perfectly and was very well written. I loved all the beautiful pictures and getting to see all around the world in just one book.

    • Paul says:

      An enjoyable collection of photographs really brought to life with the captions and short descriptions.

    • Robert Williams says:

      Just incredible photographs of the earth with witty little comments from the author. Just plain amazing

    • Nathan Robinson says:

      perfect for armchair astronauts. beautiful, insightful and often humorous. Buy.

    • Christina says:

      I've really enjoyed the ability to follow Chris Hadfield and other astronauts via twitter and instagram, seeing beautiful photographs of Earth from a far-out perspective right alongside grounded photography by family and friends. It really helps shape my outlook on the world we know.As Hadfield said in the introduction, there's something different about holding the printed photos in your hands versus just seeing them on your screen. It is a truly beautiful book, and my biggest complaint is that [...]

      “You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes” by Chris HadfieldBeing able to perceive the narrative line behind our planet’s shapes, shadows and colors is a bit like having a sixth sense. It provides a new perspective; we are small, so much smaller even than we may have thought. To me, that’s not a frightening idea. It’s a helpful corrective to the frantic self-importance we are prone to as a species – and also a reminder to make the most of our moment on this beautiful, strange, du [...]

    • James Klagge says:

      I guess I need to add a shelf for Photography or Geography. As it is, Science and Travel/Regional will have to do. Narrated pictures from space taken over several months. We live in an amazing world, but too easily get sucked down into the muck of the everyday, rather than rising up to the splendor of the nearly eternal. Thank you, Chris Hadfield--Canadian astronaut.

    • Ninja says:

      Great photography and discussion - the map of where the photos are at the end provides useful reference to those whose geography is less than stellar.Amused by the Canadian who talked about Australia using imperial units :)

    • Kevin de Ataíde says:

      Entertaining geography picture-book, containing high-definition images of the planet from the International Space Station. Highly recommended for a thorough appreciation of this great home of ours.

    • Susan says:

      What a wonderful book!

    • Edward Fenner says:

      Lots of excellent photographs (and a few less so) but overall it's a wonderful book filled with wit and wonder.
