Around the World in 92 Minutes: Photographs from the International Space Station

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 also punctuated with fun, fascinating commentary on life in zero gravity. In the spirit of his 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.

One of Space.com's Best Space Photography Books
"Is there a person left on the internet who hasn't yet swooned over astronaut Chris Hadfield's jaw-dropping images from space? Here's a chance to have them in your home.... While we've seen plenty of NASA images of our planet, Hadfield's instantly feel more personal. These photos were taken by a curious human, not as part of a larger organizational mandate. Hadfield was capturing his photos not necessarily as a scientist, but more as a zero-gravity sightseer on behalf of all civilization." Alissa Walker, Gizmodo
