The Astronaut on Mars, aka "The Martian"

The Martian - a story of an astronaut left on Mars and what he goes through to stay alive until (or if) he gets rescued.
This is a rather intriguing story, but when you throw in some quirky humor, you get completely drawn into the story.
But what makes it even more interesting is seeing how HUGE problems get broken down into teeny tiny bite size pieces as stepping stones toward a bigger goal, and you begin to walk away with an awareness, "oh yea, this just may be doable after all". It's a good reminder how overwhelming problems and situations get resolved - a little at a time.

The book is great and I'm looking forward to seeing the movie.
