Product description

Review

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

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

Engaging and illuminating.

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.

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

Tyson manifests science brilliantly....[his] insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist or educator. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
