Summary

Everywhere he goes, crowds gather to meet Buzz Aldrin. He's a world-class hero, a larger-than-life figurehead, and the best known of a generation of astronauts whose achievements surged in just a few years from first man in space to first men on the moon. Now he pauses to reflect on and share what he has learned, from the vantage point not only of outer space but also of time: Still a nonstop traveler and impassioned advocate for space exploration, Aldrin will be 86 in 2016.
No Dream Is Too High whittles down Buzz Aldrin's event-filled life into a short list of the principles he values, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories, such as:
Second comes right after first. NASA protocol should have placed Buzz Aldrin on the moon first, but rules changed just before the mission. Buzz discusses how he learned to be proud of being the second man on the moon.
Look for opportunities, not obstacles. Buzz was rejected the first time he applied to be an astronaut. Failure is an opportunity to learn to do better.
Always maintain your spirit of adventure. For his 80th birthday, Buzz went diving in the Galapagos and hitched a ride on a whale shark. He stays fit, energetic, and fascinated with life.
No Dream Is Too High is a beautiful memento, a thought-provoking set of ideas, and a new opportunity for Buzz Aldrin to connect with the masses of people who recognize his unique place in human history.

Buzz is awesome

Amazing man with some very wise words that everyone can benefit from. Entertaining, thoughtful and positive outlook on life with some heart felt inspiring insights in to someone who has fully embraced what life has to offer and still does. To echo the words of Buzz - get your ass to Mars. Great read - you’ll be inspired after reading / listening to this.

Simple life lessons from an American hero

Starting chapter is a concise summary of an extraordinary life which included stints as fighter pilot and one of only 12 moon walkers. This background then informs the rather short (5.75 hour total) narrative which provides Aldrin's take on how to live life - reinforced by examples and stories from his past and current work. While the lessons sometimes seem basic ("show me your friends and I will show you your future”) most of life is about getting the basics right after all. Also as an older adult, I appreciated his focus on the importance of keeping and fostering a spirit of adventure and innovation all through life
The narrator did a good job trying to capture the authors voice from the book in his performance – though have to admit I did end up listening to it at 1.5X speed and one gets a better sense of the energy/enthusiasm the author has vs. the sometimes paced feel of reading.

Very welcome read and credit worthy.
Sometimes good to be reminded that the basic lessons are those best remembered.
Plenty of good stories to make it a good read for biography and space enthusiasts as well.
