Chasing Space

Chasing Space: an astronaut's story of grit, grace, and second chances / Leland Melvin, 241 pgs. Read by Ron Butler

This wonderful memoir tells the story of the only person who has caught a pass in the NFL and in space. Leland Melvin has a wonderful attitude and a great life that has taken him around the world on earth and above it.  Taking inspiration from his parents who always encouraged him to succeed in school, in sports and in life, he made the most of his abilities and achieved great things thanks to second chances.  If he at first did not succeed, sometimes is was other people who believed in him and provided those chances.  This is very inspirational and will make you feel like a slacker for not doing more with your life and getting an official portrait with your pets.
