Adventure with Chester L. Richards, author of From The Potato to Star Trek and Beyond

Books That  Make You Undertake Life-Changing Adventures

We all dream of adventure. Maybe some of us take on a mountain hike, or go on safari while vacationing. Do we really know, though, what it’s like to experience heart-racing, adrenaline-rushing, real-life adventures that change us to the core, making it so that we’re never the same again?
Chester L. Richards’ life has taken him from a near-fatal encounter with “the great potato” to writing a famous Star Trek episode, to becoming a rocket scientist.
A man of adventure, Chester reveals stories and lessons from a life well-lived in his memoir, From The Potato to Star Trek and Beyond: Memoirs of a Rocket Scientist. Discover why nature wants to kill you, and how the most critical step in your success lies in your failures.
Chester is a retired aerospace engineer and inventor with 19 patents. He’s published over 50 essays, is a surfer and whitewater rafter, a lover of music, and a man who’s found solace in writing about the love of his life, his departed wife, and who now shares his tales with the world in his first memoir.
