READY FOR LAUNCH An Astronaut's Lessons for Success on Earth

by | Read by Scott Kelly

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Retired NASA astronaut and Navy pilot Scott Kelly shares leadership lessons with listeners in this concise audiobook. Kelly's clear, forthright performance advises listeners on how to enter a career filled with opportunities to evolve and how to adopt a situational leadership style. Each chapter pairs essential attributes with specific examples drawn from his missions aboard the International Space Station, his tenure at SUNY Maritime College as a novice instructor, and other challenges. He emphasizes the importance of embracing the lessons that success and failure, trial and error, and good and bad leaders can teach. Crucial to his journey, and ours, is paying attention to colleagues and others. Aerospace fans may especially enjoy Kelly's grounded perspective on the path to success.
