For Christmas, get this book NOW for your space-obsessed buddy or family member. The Astronaut’s Cookbook: Tales, Recipes, and More, by Charles T. Bourland and Gregory L. Vogt, is informative and often very funny, sharing tales from the vintage days of space travel (the best: John Young’s sandwich crimes during Gemini 3 in 1965 and Dr. Joseph Kerwin’s valiant struggle with a…sugar cookie after Skylab 2 in 1973). 

I recently purchased this book and absolutely love it – I recommend it to anyone curious about what it was like to be an astronaut from Apollo to the shuttle era, plus it has recipes from astronauts in it as well (among other cool things). This is a perfect Christmas gift – or a gift anytime of the year! – to put under the tree. I (obviously) love space books and this is a great one.
