Beloved American hero Buzz Aldrin reflects on the wisdom,
guiding principles, and irreverent anecdotes he's gathered
through his event-filled life—both in outer space and on
earth—in this inspiring guide-to-life for the next generation.
Everywhere he goes, crowds gather to meet Buzz Aldrin. He is
a world-class hero, a larger-than-life figurehead, best
known of a generation of astronauts whose achievements
surged in just a few years from first man in space to first
men on the moon. Now he pauses to reflect and share what he
has learned, from the vantage point not only of outer space
but also of time: still a non-stop traveler and impassioned
advocate for space exploration, Aldrin will be 86 in 2016.
No Dream Is Too High whittles down Buzz Aldrin's
event-filled life into a short list of principles he values,
each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories, such as:
· Second comes right after first. NASA protocol should
have meant he was first on the moon, but rules changed just
before the mission. How he learned to be proud of being the
second man on the moon.
· Look for opportunities, not obstacles. Buzz was
rejected the first time he applied to be an astronaut.
Failure is an opportunity to learn to do better.
· Always maintain your spirit of adventure. For his
80th birthday, Buzz went diving in the Galapagos and hitched
a ride on a whale shark. He stays fit, energetic, and
fascinated with life.
No Dream Is Too High is a beautiful memento, a
thought-provoking set of ideas, and a new opportunity for
Buzz Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who
recognize his unique place in human history.
