Beloved American hero and astronaut Buzz Aldrin reflects on the wisdom, guiding principles, and irreverent anecdotes he's gathered—both in outer space and on earth—through his event-filled life, in this inspiring guide-to-life for the next generation. Everywhere he goes, crowds gather to meet Buzz Aldrin. He is a world-class hero, a larger-than-life figurehead, 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 and share what he has learned, from the vantage point not only of outer space but also of time: still a non-stop 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 principles he values, each illustrated by fascinating anecdotes and memories, such as: · Second comes right after first. NASA protocol should have meant he was first on the moon, but rules changed just before the mission. 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.

Where are you standing today? Are the people around you encouraging you? Are they motivating you to persevere and push towards your goal, or are they discouraging you through words and actions, trying to hold you back or make you believe you cant do it? Let us try to be people of positivity and start lifting one another up for our future and for the generations to come, rather than criticizing and discouraging one another. One word can make or break a person. We must be careful of what we say to people about their actions or dreams; try to encourage people to strive towards their goals. We never know, our encouragement for someone else may be just the thing they need to hear at that time. The following few chapters are based on a few individuals that I have the privilege of knowing. These people are just normal people, just like you and I, but I wanted to share with you their stories. These people faced discouragement and struggles but never gave up on their visions. Let their testimonies be an example and encouragement for you; you are somebody and even you can go on to do great things.

Discover the life-changing impact of a gap year through the eyes of a mother whose son lost his spark and joy of learning during high school-a casualty of college prep education and the anxiety-filled quest to attend the "best college." In Am I Too Late?, higher education and career coaching veterans Cindy Funk and Jim Bellar make the case why parents should help their student explore alternative learning options like taking a gap year after high school. Cindy, like many parents, got caught up in the high-pressure stakes of college admissions, wanting her son, Mackenzie, to be accepted by "the best school." She gives an authentic and vulnerable account of her crusade to help him reconnect with the joy of learning after he announces that he is burned out by his senior year and wants to defer college and take a gap year. Utilizing flexible planning and design thinking, the family supports Mackenzie's decision to take a learning journey that includes hiking the Appalachian Trail, teaching in Swaziland, navigating the waters of British Columbia, and researching marine life on a tall ship in the Caribbean. In this evolving, experiential "classroom," he gains competencies sought by employers and a capacity to manage the unseen, unpredictable and unplanned events. A useful resource for parents of teens, Am I Too Late? provides insight into the benefits of gap years, college admissions, college costs, college degree myths, and furnishes research references and resources. Valuable exercises are presented to give parents practical strategies in helping their young adult navigate the high school to college transition including asking essential questions like: "Why do you want to go to college?"
