Jamille’s Rating    

Endurance was a fascinating surprise.  In an astronauts memoir, it has what you expect, the wonder of space, but this biography it has many surprising stories.  You often wonder throughout the book how a wild card like Scott Kelly who didn't seem to care about school as much as partying would end up being the man who spent the most time consecutively in space.  After joining a military school, he became a much sought-after aircraft specialist and decorated aviator.  It is well written for the non-astrophysicist and talks about many situations you wouldn't even consider in space, for instance, build up of CO2 when equipment fails.  He quips about mold and toilets while being very honest about his world in space and how his love affair with it hurt his personal relationships on earth.  This biography will take you on a fantastical ride that will make you think, exhilarate you and break your heart.
