Colonel Chris Hadfield's You Are Here: Around the World in 92 Minutes: Photographs from the International Space Station is a gorgeous book of photographs that encapsulates Hadfield's singular eye for our world as it appears from above. Divided by continent, You Are Here represents one (idealized) orbit of the International Space Station from its former commander. This planetary photo toursurprising, playful, thought-provoking, and visually delightfulis also punctuated with a fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity. In the spirit of 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.

"Hadfield proves himself to be not only a fierce explorer of the universe, but also a deeply thoughtful explorer of the human condition, capable of articulating those most universal of inquiries in simple yet profound language...The book itself is absolutely spectacular." Brain Pickings
