Praise for Neil deGrasse Tyson's #1 New York Times best-selling guide to the cosmos, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry"Grappling with the scope of the universe…is no simple endeavor, but in this tidy overview, Tyson succeeds with seeming effortlessness."–San Francisco Chronicle"With wry humor, keen vision, and abundant humanity, Neil deGrasse Tyson distills the big questions of space, time, and reality into short, insightful chapters."–Discover"A winner that every astronomy enthusiast should have on the bookshelf!"–David J. Eicher, Astronomy"Lovely book. Last chapter worthy of Carl Sagan himself."–Richard Dawkins"Tyson breaks these big ideas into digestible lessons with the humor and charisma he’s known and loved for.”–Popular Mechanics"Tyson’s insights are valuable for any leader, teacher, scientist, or educator."–Forbes"A great gift for the scientifically inclined (but busy)."–Chicago Tribune"Vintage Tyson—engaging, chatty, and littered with historical and linguistic anecdotes."–Times Higher Education
