Sharing Space

An Astronaut’s Guide to Mission, Wonder, and Making Change
By Cady Coleman, former NASA astronaut

Penguin Life (2024)

“Inspiring . . . a unique road map for leaders everywhere.”

In 2010, Cady Coleman boarded a rocket and blasted off into space for her third NASA mission, a six-month expedition to the International Space Station where she was the only woman on her six-person crew. Her determination and amazing experiences give her a unique perspective on how to set yourself up for success, in space and here on Earth. This book will inspire anyone eager to escape a box in which they have been (wrongly) placed and to develop the confidence to succeed, even when they’re not an obvious “fit.”

Ellen Daly, you are truly a wizard, not just with words, but with weaving together stories and bringing them to life. What you’ve given me goes beyond the book, helping me to think more deeply about my life, and I can’t thank you enough.

Cady Coleman

Former NASA astronaut, author, Sharing Space

“An inspiring, insightful read . . . 

. . . about how to overcome insecurities, build bonds, and break barriers. There’s no bigger childhood dream than becoming an astronaut, and there’s no bigger adult aspiration than becoming more like Cady Coleman. This is an inside look at what it’s like to be in outer space—and a guide to leading a meaningful life.”
—Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Potential and Think Again

“Sharing Space offers a rare glimpse into the heart of a pioneer . . .

. . . offering lessons from beyond our world to help us better navigate our own. With each page, she challenges us to look beyond the horizon of our own experiences, to question the impossible, and to redefine what it means to lead in an era of unprecedented change. This is not just a story about space exploration; it’s a roadmap for navigating the frontiers of our lives and careers.”
Barbara Barrett, former United States Secretary of the Air Force
