Review

Tyson is a master of streamlining and simplification....taking mind-bogglingly complex ideas, stripping them down to their nuts and bolts, padding them with colorful allegories and dorky jokes, and making them accessible to the layperson

This book will keep you fascinated with succinct and dynamic explanations of a wide variety of astronomical topics. A winner that every astronomy enthusiast should have on the bookshelf!--David J. Eicher

This may have been written for people in a hurry, but I urge you to take your time. It will all be over far too soon.

Engaging and illuminating.

Tyson manifests science brilliantly....[his] insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist or educator.

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry will blow your mind....it is awesome.

Product Description

Over a year on the New York Times bestseller list and more than a million copies sold.



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.
