Publisher Description

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive--and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.
Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills--and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit--he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

Description: Crown Publishers, Inc. 2/11/2014. Used hardcover. First Edition, First Printing. Very Good in Very Good jacket. Author has signed on a tippped-in page. Store pick: When astronaut and mechanical engineer Mark Watney is stranded on Mars, he must use his MacGyver-like skills and his Jack O'Neill attitude to make a cross-planet pilgrimage to a jury-rigged shuttle, his only chance of returning to Earth. I absolutely adored this edge-of-your-seat survival thriller that I also found LOL funny. It is perfect for both Michael Crichton fans and sci-fi fans. -Jill Hendrix, Fiction Addiction Signed by author.
