Description of this Book

Now in paperback and updated with a new essay on his celebrated trip to Antarctica comes this best-selling inspirational memoir from beloved astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Buzz Aldrin is an American hero. Always larger than life, he is the best known surviving member of a generation of astronauts who in just a few years became both the first men in space and first men on the moon. In this inspiring book, Aldrin pauses to reflect and share what he has learned about life from the vantage point of both outer space and time. (Still a nonstop traveler and impassioned advocate for space exploration, he turned 87 in 2017.) Consisting of nine principles to live by, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories, this thought-provoking book is a beautiful memento of a life well lived--and a new opportunity for Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who recognize his unique place in human history. * CELEBRITY AUTHOR: Probably the best known astronaut in the world, Buzz Aldrin thrives on public events and recognition. Book events draw hundreds at a time; event-goers buy multiple copies at a visit. As he ages, he becomes an even more beloved media star. * BEST-SELLING COLLABORATOR: Aldrin's co-author Ken Abraham has co-written 13 New York Times bestsellers, with 3 in the #1 slot. * COMMERCIALLY APPEALING FOLLOW-UP TITLE: This book continues the strong sales trend of Aldrin's recent book, Mission to Mars, with an entry in a new and appealing genre. * STRONG MARKETING PLATFORM: Beloved by the American public, Aldrin is an appealing media presence for TV, radio, print, and online. He is often in the public eye (FIVE events in the month of March 2017 alone; 13 between Mar & Sept '17) and garners attention and adulation in the press (e.g., Al Roker featured him on Today after a standing ovation at the 2017 Super Bowl). * SOCIAL MEDIA POTENTIAL: Aldrin tweets @TheRealBuzz (999K followers) and maintains a Facebook page (450K likes). Ken Abraham maintains his own website, www.kenabrahambooks.com
