In You Are Here, astronaut Chris Hadfield creates a surprisingly intimate and compelling visual essay about the planet we live on, choosing the best from the thousands of photos he took on the International Space Station.
     Chris Hadfield's new book shows us our home--our city, country, continent, our whole planet--from a unique perspective. The millions of us who followed Chris's Twitter feed from the ISS thought we knew what we were looking at when we saw his photos. This photo documentary shows us we didn't. We caught the beauty but missed the meaning. Curated from images never before shared, Chris's big picture reveals why our planet looks the way it does and why we live where we do. Chris sees more in these images than we do, not just because he's spent months in space but because his in-depth knowledge of geology, geography and meteorology allows him to read the mysteries the photos reveal.
     Divided by continent, You Are Here represents one (idealized) orbit of the ISS. This planetary photo tour--surprising, playful, thought-provoking and visually delightful--is punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity, too. In the spirit of his #1 bestselling An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth, You Are Here opens a singular window on our planet, using remarkable photographs to illuminate the history and consequences of human settlement, the magnificence (and wit) of never-before-noticed landscapes, and the power of the natural forces shaping our world and the future of our species.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cool Concept I went to the book signing for this and the book is a great idea but the author's attitude at the event really turned me off. If you are interested in space this book is probably a good edition to your collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an incredible book! I bought this book for a friend and I had to look at it first and I must say that the pictures from space are incredible of our precious Earth! This should be put in schools for all of the children, teens and adults alike! Simply Wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enthralling I bought this book for two nine year old grandsons. I was so enthralled that I bought a third copy for my collection. I loved the fact that the grandsons each saw something in the pictures that their background of experience brought to their minds. Then we read the description of the picture and their minds were expanded. Love this book. Thanks to Chris Hadfield for sharing his experiences with us Earthlings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good coffee table book I bought this as a gift after hearing an interview but was disappointed in the content. Some really nice pictures, but that is about all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Amazing Book I bought this book for the beautiful photography but was equally transfixed by the interesting commentary on the pictures. I knew the photos would be great as I followed Chris on twitter, but I was not prepared for the clever and insightful way that the book was put together. The kind of content that will intrigue both an artist and scientist equally. How often does that happen? I guess that is what makes Chris unique. He has the ability to not only show you the beauty of our world, but also explain it in a simple, fun and quite humble manner that engages everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful book A fascinating perspective on our world: awesome photos and insightful comments. I'm telling all my friends about it but won't lend my copy to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than his first book This book makes me proud to be Canadian. Hadfield's amazing pictures and insightful commentary remind citizens of every country of the fragility, variety and beauty of our planet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary and beautiful Really interesting and inspiring collection of pictures taken from space. Like sitting beside Colonel Hadfield during an orbit of the planet. I have to take issue with the previous review. This clearly isn't supposed to be a coffee table tome that gathers dust but a useful and informative book people will actually enjoy and read, making Col. Hadfield's photos and knowledge accessible to all. Proceeds are going to the Canadian Red Cross--a classy move by a Canadian hero.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An Inexpensive Book If you're looking for an inexpensive coffee table book then this is for you. Keep in mind you'll get what you pay for. The pictures are not big and some are quite soft/fuzzy. Not really coffee table book quality.
