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
"You Are Here ... offers readers a magnificent photographic view of something very familiar: Earth."―Sarah Gray, Salon
"Awe-inspiring photos... Sprinkled among the pictures are Hadfield's fun factoids about life without gravity."―Parade
"A photographic exploration of the planet, a series of spectacular images snapped from the International Space Station."―David Martindale, Dallas Morning News
"Eye-opening and often whimsical."―John McMurtrie, Houston Chronicle
"A visually stunning tour of Earth.... Breathtaking photos."―CBS This Morning
"A stunning book of photos."―Alyssa Newcomb, ABC News
"Fun and fascinating."―David Martindale, Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"The photos are fascinating, and Hadfield's commentary is by turns insightful and playful, revealing deforestation on one page, and landforms that resemble ears on another. A sure hit for fans of photography, cartography, geography or space travel."―Wendy Sawatzky, Winnipeg Free Press --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
