My name is Mike Mongo and I am an astronaut teacher. Also: author of The Astronaut Instruction Manual. That said, I know my 5-star review may be biased but I wanted to share with B&N book readers the REAL reason I wrote The AIM. When I grew up I wanted to be an astronaut. The Astronaut Instruction Manual makes sure that today's students can discover the skills and what it takes to be one of the next generation of space explorers from planet earth. Today's young student readers are of the generation who will be living, working, and playing in space. They are between 8-13 years old today. When they graduate from college (or thereabouts) it will be around 2030. For a grown-up this may be a long ways off but for today's students, most will only just beginning their professional lives. In other words, The AIM is a timely read for young students who imagine a space future with themselves in it. By encouraging young students today to set their sights on tomorrow's jobs in space, The Astronaut Instruction Manual gives today's young students a critical competitive advantage for those jobs. Depending on my success in that regard–and I hear it is very successful–The AIM is one of the best books for parents, guardians, and mentors to put in the hands of any young reader who has stars in their eyes.
