Astrophysics for People in a Hurry

iDreamBooks' Rating: 82% (Read Reviews)

The essential universe, from our most celebrated and beloved astrophysicist. What is the nature of space and time? How do we fit within the universe? How does the universe fit within us? There’s no better guide through these mind-expanding questions than acclaimed astrophysicist and best-selling author Neil deGrasse Tyson. But today, few of us have time to contemplate the cosmos. So Tyson brings the universe down to Earth succinctly and clearly, with sparkling wit, in tasty chapters consumable anytime and anywhere in your busy day. While you wait for your morning coffee to brew, for the bus, the train, or a plane to arrive, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will reveal just what you need to be fluent and ready for the next cosmic headlines: from the Big Bang to black holes, from quarks to quantum mechanics, and from the search for planets to the search for life in the universe.

NY Journal of Books: Positive
...this particular one makes it all seem wonderful—and more than that, it makes it seem like it matters and actually can be easily understood.
Booklist Online: Positive
Even readers normally averse to anything to do with physics or chemistry will find Tyson’s wittily delivered explanations compelling and disarmingly entertaining.
The Maine Edge: Positive
“Astrophysics for People in a Hurry” is an ideal book for anyone looking for a crash course in or a brush-up on the basics of astrophysics...smart and informative without every feeling dry, a chance to learn more about the stars even as you’re being encouraged to reach for them.
Washington Independent Review of Books: Positive
Savor this book in snippets of time as you have them. Then open the science section of a newspaper, visit a museum, or just gaze up at the night sky and see if your knowledge and appreciation haven’t grown a bit deeper.

Ultimately, reading Astrophysics for People in a Hurry is both a humbling and exhilarating experience. Compared to the vast and expanding universe, we are tiny, irrelevant specks.
