    1. I really enjoyed this book. It was different. I would never pick this out on my own, but since it was recommended to me, I tried it. This book puts being in isolation into perspective. In this instance, the author, Dr. Jerry Linenger, chronicles his five month stay on the russian space station MIR with the letters he wrote to his son. I thought that this was a clever way to express what happens to one in isolation. Tho already written, I liked the way that this book was in letter format to Linen [...]


    2. Jerry Michael Linenger ist ein US-amerikanischer Astronaut, der 1997 132 Tage auf der Mir verbrachte. Während dieser 132 Tage schrieb er seinem damals gerade 18 Monate alten Sohn E-Mails, in denen er ihm seinen Alltag auf der Raumstation schildert. Dieser Briefe erschienen auch als Buch unter dem Titel „Letters from MIR: An Astronaut's Letters to His Son“.69 Minuten lang liest Peter Jordan unterbrochen von einigen Sachinformationen über die MIR und die damalige politische Situation (gespro [...]


    3. As the title states, this is Astronaut's Jerry Leninger's letter's he wrote to his infant son during his stay on the Russians Space Station Mir. Because they are letters that are updated on a routine basis, the book reads a little like a journal. A couple nice things about the book is a number of the technical issues are explained at a rudimentary level, and it is nice to see the love a father for his son mixed in with some of technical explanations. Because of the nature of the book, it reads a [...]


    4. I saw Jerry Linenger speak at - of all things - an Agile software user's conference. One of the best experiences of my life, and totally caught off guard by it. I would say he is the person that got me more interested in space. What an incredible speaker! At the time, Jerry held the record for the longest duration in space of an American male at that time when he spent 5 months about the Russian space station Mir. He wrote letters to his young son while aboard the space station. Sweet and moving [...]


    5. Boring. This book could have been SO much more. He intentionally left out any information in his letters home about what was happening while he was in space which left the book completely empty of value. Fire, breakdowns, life threatening challenges that he could have used to convey so many emotions and life lessons. What a shame he totally shut himself off from acknowledging these significant events.


    6. I found this work interesting. The compilation of historical accounts aboard MIR, along with descriptive and informative explanations to the author's son, are of great value.Read for personal research.Overall, a good book for the researcher and enthusiast.I found this book's contents helpful and inspiring - number rating relates to the book's contribution to my needs.
