Endorsed by authors, teachers, scientists and Congressmen, Mike Mongo's Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens excites a new generation of space explorers. The audiobook, designed for children between the ages of 8 and 13, is a functioning, first-step instruction manual. With excitement and honesty, Mongo encourages his readers to articulate and personalize their own vision of next-generation space travel. Driven in part by new space celebrities (Commander Chris Hadfield, Elon Musk, Alyssa Carson), and in part by a shift in popular interest in space (SpaceX rockets, Guardians of the Galaxy movie, Kerbal Space Program videogaming), The Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens captures a new era of enthusiasm for space exploration.

Professional reviews

"Author and narrator Mike Mongo says, "You are what you think." And he thinks we're destined to become "humannaires"--civilian space travelers. This "manual" is a practical and motivational handbook designed to help young people fulfill this extraterrestrial destiny. Mongo's passion for his topic is evident in his enthusiastic reading. His zeal is infectious, and it's hard not to be inspired by his staunch support of space travel. He stresses the cultivation of mental focus, varied experiences, resourcefulness, and commitment. With solid science to back him up, Mongo serves up common-sense advice and thought-provoking perspectives designed to inspire and facilitate a future world in which ordinary people will leave Earth for travel and even settlement in the other parts of the cosmos.
