Spiders in COVID space: adapting during and after the pandemic (2021)
Spiders in COVID Space: Adapting during and after the pandemic is an anthology of inspiring stories about pivots made during the COVID-19 pandemic. The series is a sequel to, and draws on the 11 adaptive traits identified in, the bestselling book Spiders in Space: Successfully Adapting to Unwanted Change by Todd Hirsch and Robert Roach (2017).
The spiders in the title were sent into space by NASA to see if they could spin webs without the aid of gravity. After some false starts, they adapted to the new conditions and were able to spin brand new structures of webs in a totally different environment. The pandemic has presented all of us with a wide range of situations where our gravity has been taken away.
Spiders in Space: Successfully Adapting to Unwanted Change
Drawing on inspiring stories of individuals, organizations and businesses, Todd and his co-author Rob Roach present a selection of adaptive traits that can help us not only survive, but thrive, when unwanted change comes our way.
Featuring a foreword by Canadian Astronaut Dr. Robert Thirsk, Spiders in Space is particularly timely given the unwanted change brought on by two years of recession in our province.
Available on iTunes and as an eBook on Kobo and Amazon Kindle.

Halfway Home: Fifty Years in Fifty Chapters
In his newest book, Halfway Home, author and commentator Todd Hirsch reflects on each of his 50 years so far -- one chapter for each year -- sharing details of his childhood, growing through adolescence, and finding his way from job, to career, to calling.
At turns humorous, thought-provoking and poignant, Halfway Home brings back memories of growing up in Alberta through the changing '60s and '70s, of world travels, of navigating challenges and of achieving the half-century milestone birthday.
"It is in the most ordinary situations that the most extraordinary events happen. But you have to keep your eyes and ears open to notice them. They are fleeting. You can't plan for them. Life is just this way." - Todd Hirsch
